VIS­I­BLE RE­SULTS FROM COPPERBOWL

Pinjarra Murray Times - - STREET WATCH - - Man­durah of­fi­cer-in-charge Se­nior Sergeant Stephen Thomp­son

IIn July and Au­gust Man­durah Lo­cal Polic­ing Team launched a lo­cal ac­tion plan called Op­er­a­tion Copperbowl which tar­geted a spe­cific area and spe­cific in­di­vid­u­als aimed at re­duc­ing the in­stance of bur­glary and steal­ing. You may have no­ticed your lo­cal po­lice out and about in shop­ping cen­tres, train sta­tion and the sub­urbs. We added four legs to our two, bring­ing in our ca­nine and mounted sec­tion. Re­sults have been pos­i­tive, with mul­ti­ple of­fend­ers ap­pre­hended for bur­glary and theft, prop­erty re­cov­ered and good seizures of drugs and weapons. Don’t worry fur­ther op­er­a­tions are planned. Crime statis­tics show the con­tin­u­a­tion of a fall in our rates of bur­glary, theft and steal­ing of mo­tor ve­hi­cles. But don’t get com­pla­cent: lock doors and windows, close garages and se­cure prop­erty out of sight.
