BIG CRACK­DOWN IS UN­DER WAY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch - – Of­fi­cer in Charge of Kens­ing­ton Po­lice Sta­tion, Se­nior Sergeant Ash­ley Goy

OP­ER­A­TION SWEEP is un­der way. This is a metropoli­tan wide in­ten­sive Po­lice op­er­a­tion to ar­rest the crime rate, which at present is un­ac­cept­able. We will be fo­cus­ing on many ar­eas of crime. To as­sist us in re­duc­ing easy tar­gets, we again ask for sim­ple crime preven­tion mea­sures which may pre­vent you or some­one you know from be­com­ing the next vic­tim. Do not leave valu­ables on show in your ve­hi­cle. Lap­tops, iPhones, GPS nav­i­ga­tion de­vices are soft tar­gets. Many cars are left un­locked. Lock your house, more so when not at home. Se­cure your mail­box as there have again been a num­ber of mail thefts. Po­lice will be in­creas­ing their pres­ence and we ask if you see any­thing sus­pi­cious, call po­lice on 131444 and a re­sponse will be gen­er­ated.
