RE­CENT in­ci­dents of dam­age to let­ter­boxes in Man­ning have been a con­cern. Act­ing Snr Sgt Ker­ber said peo­ple needed to main­tain aware­ness of be­long­ings while in shop­ping cen­tres. Purses are still be­ing stolen from unat­tended hand­bags inside stores, lead­ing to a large num­ber of fraud of­fences where stolen credit cards are be­ing used. In in­stances where you dis­cover that your bank or credit cards have been stolen, re­port the mat­ter to your bank im­me­di­ately and have a stop put on the card. With the school hol­i­days draw­ing to a close over the com­ing weeks and par­ents breath­ing a col­lec­tive sigh of re­lief, can we re­mind ev­ery­one that school premises are still off lim­its. Re­cent in­ci­dents at Kens­ing­ton Pri­mary School, where dam­age was caused in sev­eral rooms and a small grass fire was lo­cated out­side one of the build­ings, has po­lice and Ed­u­ca­tion Se­cu­rity alike on alert. Po­lice con­tinue to mon­i­tor and pa­trol the schools but we can't be ev­ery­where all the time. Call the Po­lice As­sis­tance Cen­tre on 131 444 to re­port any in­ci­dents that are oc­cur­ring, or call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.
