Secure premises and lock away valuables
Katanning police have been kept busy with the influx of traffic around the Queen’s Birthday public holiday weekend and movements of the community during the school holidays.
Several burglaries were reported to police over a number of weeks in September, however some efficient police work, along with some timely information from the community, has resulted in the apprehension of five juveniles, who will now appear in court charged with burglary and stealing offences.
Katanning police were out in numbers during the public holiday period with more than 200 motorists stopped, and with no fatalities in the sub district, the police commend the community on the responsible driving displayed.
Katanning police would like to warn residents to secure premises and lock away any valuables.
It is also a good time to do a spring check on your vehicles and take care of any maintenance issues.
Remember to report any suspicious behaviour to police and keep an eye out on your neighbours’ property as well.
Reducing crime is a partnership and police need the community’s support to make things difficult for would-be offenders.
Your vigilance and support for police and emergency services is always appreciated.
For 24-hour help, call 131 444 or dial 000 for emergencies.
Acting Senior Sergeant Aaron Honey.
