Crime creeping up
Sgt Wride said the station had one “hybrid” local policing team and a couple of extra officers who did response tasks as well in the sub-district covering Yanchep, Two Rocks, Eglinton and Alkimos.
“Crime has started to creep up this year,” he said.
“A lot is to do with people leaving valuables in cars and houses unlocked.”
He said thefts from building sites were an ongoing issue and urged people to report anything suspicious.
“If anyone is near a home under construction and sees someone taking something, take a note of the registration number and give us a call,” he said.
“If someone is taking something from a building site, there is a good chance they are stealing it.”
