WE WILL KEEP AN EYE ON SCHOOLS
WE will be out in force during the school holidays to ensure schools are not being targeted by vandals. We will be patrolling schools regularly and working with education security officers at a time when empty schools are often targeted. It is also a timely reminder for people to keep their property secure, especially in the shopping centre carparks. We encourage people to report suspicious behaviour if they see it. – Senior Sergeant Glenn Dowding
