CRIME FIG­URES DOWN BUT STAY VIG­I­LANT: PO­LICE

Kwinana Courier - - Street Watch -

OVER­ALL Kwinana Po­lice sub­dis­trict is fair­ing well this year on crime fig­ures, com­pared not only to last year but the five year av­er­age. The main sub­urbs of con­cern are the Kwinana Town Cen­tre and Wel­lard. Cal­ista and Me­d­ina con­tinue to move above the av­er­age so we con­tinue to ask every­one to re­main vig­i­lant. Kwinana Town Cen­tre is a lit­tle unique, the shop­ping precinct is in­creas­ing in size, so there­fore more op­por­tu­ni­ties to steal items, while new res­i­dences go­ing up has also seen an in­crease in bur­glary and

mo­tor ve­hi­cle theft. While we work hard daily to iden­tify, ap­pre­hend and pros­e­cute the peo­ple com­mit­ting of­fences, we reg­u­larly ask for help in iden­ti­fy­ing them from images in the lo­cal pa­pers, Twit­ter and Face­book. If you know them, tell us. Don't pre­sume that an­other per­son will tell us. We need in­for­ma­tion from every­one to en­sure the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion is made. This can be done by call­ing the sta­tion on 131444 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
