Of­fi­cers drop in for safety check

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA busi­nesses last­week re­ceived a visit from the po­lice.

But their pur­pose was not to in­ves­ti­gate crimes.

Po­lice of­fi­cers Shaughan Lan­ham and CamMosley de­liv­ered busi­ness se­cu­rity pack­ages, chat­ted with busi­ness own­ers and staff, and updated contact de­tails.

“The pack­ages were pro­vided to all busi­nesses within Mun­dub­bera as an in­for­ma­tion tool for busi­ness own­ers, man­agers and staff in re­la­tion to gen­eral busi­ness and premises se­cu­rity and cash han- dling,” Sgt Lan­ham said.

“We also took the op­por­tu­nity to get contact de­tails for sit­u­a­tions where we may need to get in touch out­side nor­mal trad­ing hours.

“Of­fences aren’t on the in­crease – we are just try­ing to re­duce in­ci­dences,” Sgt Lan­ham said.

“A check of re­cent oc­cur­rences iden­ti­fied the main causal fac­tors in re­la­tion to prop­erty of­fences in­volv­ing busi­nesses were the se­cu­rity of the premises and cash han­dling so we’re tak­ing pre­ven­ta­tive ac­tion.”
