I worked as the Location Manager at Hoyts Salisbury for many years and to be honest the crime rate surprised me with a lot less incidents taking place compared to when I worked at Marion Cinemas. It is a rough, low income demographic but apart from occasional graffitti in the public toilets, my car was never vandalised, and only had 2 x major incidents (only with young kids shoplifting) that come to mind.
Yes, many poorly lit areas, one unsolved murder of a chemist worker at parabanks (scary). Lots of pokies venues in a concentrated area near shops. Not enough council intervention in crime protection. School kids get harassed walking home. Having said that we play golf there, had no probs and it's a nice course, if not a bit littered.
