Po­lice and com­mu­nity groups will be work­ing to­gether to max­imise the safety and se­cu­rity of about 8000 school leavers this month. There will be Leavers En­ter­tain­ment Zones at Duns­bor­ough and Rot­tnest for safe and pos­i­tive en­vi­ron­ments, and non-profit group Red Frogs will again pro­vide sup­port. This year, there is an app – www.face­­swa2017/ – for both par­ents and leavers. For the safety of other leavers and the pub­lic, po­lice will not tol­er­ate anti-so­cial be­hav­iour and drink or dru­gaf­fected driv­ing. We, with hun­dreds of vol­un­teers, work hard to pro­vide a safe cel­e­bra­tion for leavers af­ter their hard work at school. We ask leavers to look out for them­selves and their friends, be re­spect­ful and be­have ap­pro­pri­ately. – As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Craig Ward


Two men were in­jured and had a back­pack stolen af­ter be­ing as­saulted at a fast food out­let on Can­ning High­way in Septem­ber. They were check­ing a bus timetable about 11.30pm on Septem­ber 8 when three men ap­proached. They fled to the nearby restau­rant but re­ceived mi­nor in­juries when they were fol­lowed and as­saulted by one of the men. “Dur­ing the in­ci­dent a back­pack was stolen from one of the vic­tims,” a po­lice spokesman said. Po­lice said the man they want to speak to over the in­ci­dent has fair skin, medium build, long brown hair and is about 35 years old. He was last seen wear­ing a red adi­das hoodie with white stripes and ripped blue jeans. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Crime Stoppers and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 8678.


Two firearms were dis­cov­ered on the riverbed near the Black­wall Reach Cliffs in Bicton. Recre­ational scuba divers made the find on Septem­ber 3. The guns were re­cov­ered by po­lice divers. One weapon was de­scribed as a BSA Model Mar­tini Cadet Ri­fle, the other a J Stevens A&T Co Ri­fle. Po­lice are look­ing for the owner or the rea­son they were dumped in the Swan River. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call Crime Stoppers and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 8686.


Wa­ter Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a steal­ing in­ci­dent at the jetty on Corkhill Street, North Fre­man­tle. Po­lice said a man and woman re­moved a tool box from a boat docked along the jetty. The in­ci­dent oc­curred be­tween Oc­to­ber 11 and 15. Po­lice be­lieve a man and a woman can help their in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The man has fair skin, a medium build and is be­tween 20 and 30 years of age. He was seen rid­ing a bike. The woman also has fair skin and is be­tween 20 and 30 years of age with a medium build and was wear­ing a hoodie and a back­pack. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call po­lice and quote ref­er­ence num­ber 8691.
