Western Suburbs Weekly - - STREETWATCH - - Se­nior Sergeant Ca­role Ver­non

Steal­ing from the beaches is an on­go­ing, se­ri­ous is­sue, and the more valu­ables peo­ple take to the beach the more likely it will be­come a shop­ping place for thieves. Our pa­trols will be fo­cused around the ar­eas used by the gen­eral pub­lic at the time. If peo­ple are at beaches, we'll be there. If it's too hot to be at the beach, we'll be at shop­ping cen­tres where peo­ple go for the air-con­di­tion­ing. Com­plex fac­tors con­trib­ute to the in­crease in steal­ing from beaches and beach car parks, in­clud­ing eco­nomic fac­tors and peo­ple's care­less­ness to pro­tect their own prop­erty. Just don't take your valu­able prop­erty to the beach, or only take what you ab­so­lutely need, like a towel, sun­screen, sun­glasses and a hat.
