Cops calm crime fear

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

KIR­WAN po­lice were out yesterday al­lay­ing fears of some of the city’s most vul­ner­a­ble. Af­ter a re­cent spate of break- ins in re­tire­ment vil­lages, po­lice were putting minds at ease, say­ing they were not be­ing tar­geted, as well as re­mind­ing them to be vig­i­lant in lock­ing their homes and putting their valu­ables out of sight. Kir­wan of­fi­cer- in- charge Se­nior Sergeant Bren­ton Webb said re­tire­ment vil­lages were not be­ing specif­i­cally tar­geted by bur­glars, but it was im­por­tant for peo­ple to “lock it or lose it”. “It’s im­por­tant to re­as­sure them and al­lay any fears that they had,” he said. “The res­i­dents loved it, they en­joy the po­lice com­ing around and speak­ing with them.”
