MERGER LIFTS OUR RE­SPONSE TIMES

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

SINCE the Cottes­loe po­lice sta­tion re­cently joined the cen­tral metropoli­tan po­lice district we have no­ticed a de­crease in the times it takes to re­spond to calls for po­lice as­sis­tance. This was most no­tice­able when Cottes­loe of­fi­cers, mem­bers of the Re­gional Op­er­a­tions Group and ca­nine po­lice re­sponded to a bur­glary in Cottes­loe last week. We have also been able to use th­ese of­fi­cers in our crack­down on re­cent crime in Mos­man Park. There has been an im­me­di­ate re­duc­tion in crimes in the area, and my of­fi­cers now feel en­er­gised to tackle the district's is­sues. How­ever, the pub­lic has its role to play, in­clud­ing lock­ing win­dows and doors, which are mostly crim­i­nals' en­trances to cars and homes and keep­ing valu­ables in cars out of sight. - Se­nior Sergeant Tony Booker
