Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

WITH the malls busy at this time of the year we see an in­crease in pa­tron­age and with it an in­crease in steal­ing. Shoplift­ing, steal­ing of peo­ples' purses and hand­bags and also anti-so­cial be­hav­iour all in­crease. In an­tic­i­pa­tion of this we have or­gan­ised Op­er­a­tion Ah­mose so we're putting ex­tra re­sources in the malls, both on push­bikes and in cars, so there will be a height­ened po­lice pres­ence fo­cus­ing on the is­sue. Par­tic­u­larly for women tak­ing their hand­bags into the city for shop­ping, make sure your hand­bag is with you at all times. Don't leave your bag in shop­ping trol­leys, leave it on you with your purse in­side and keep the bag zipped. Keep it close, on your shoul­ders or held safe and se­cure.

Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Glenn Spencer
