Se­cure premises and lock away valu­ables

Great Southern Herald - - News - Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Aaron Honey

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.
