TAKE CARE AT HOME AND ON ROADS

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

DOU­BLE de­mer­its will ap­ply over the An­zac Day long week­end and po­lice will be out en­forc­ing the mes­sage – please stay safe on the roads. It’s typ­i­cally a time of high dan­ger and we have strate­gies in place to com­bat the in­evitable drink-driv­ing, speed­ing and mo­bile phone use. If you are go­ing away, tell your neigh­bours you’re go­ing so they can keep an eye on your house and take pre­cau­tions such as bring­ing in your bins and keep­ing some lights on. I wish you well over the break for a safe and happy time with your fam­ily while we re­flect on the dig­gers who sac­ri­ficed so much all those years ago. - Se­nior Sergeant Ray Thomp­son.
