Cop some top advice
POLICE OUT AND ABOUT ON COMMUNITY DAY
Locals had a chance to meet Shepparton police officers on Sunday in a fun, relaxed day at Bunnings Warehouse.
The Shepparton police’s community day is an event that allows the officers to get out into the community, meet residents and talk about various matters including community safety, raise money through the Blue Ribbon Foundation for GV Health and connect with residents.
Shepparton police Leading Senior Constable Glenn Gibson said residents could have their vehicle’s number plates secured from theft, check out new and old police car models dating back to the 1970s, and children could take a ride in the police copper car.
‘‘I think it’s about making ourselves available, people like to come up and just have a chat about what’s going on in their life and their opinions on community safety, so we like to give them security advice about how to make their lives a bit safer,’’ Ldg Sen Const Gibson said.
‘‘Or we have a chat about recruiting. You’d be surprised what sorts of weird and wonderful questions get asked of the police when we come out and meet the community.’’
Lending a hand: David Callerane raises money through the Blue Ribbon Foundation.
Stay safe: Volunteer number plate changers help drivers.
