Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

RESIDENTS who live around schools are be­ing en­cour­aged to keep an eye out for thieves and van­dals, be­cause there is an in­crease in schools be­ing tar­geted by thieves around the school hol­i­days. We are ask­ing residents to be on the look­out for sus­pi­cious peo­ple on or around school prop­erty, es­pe­cially if they hear any bang­ing or glass break­ing. We of­ten see schools be­ing tar­geted over this pe­riod, so it is im­por­tant for the com­mu­nity to be our eyes and ears on the street. We of­ten see young peo­ple get­ting in trou­ble dur­ing the hol­i­days by keep­ing bad com­pany and this can re­sult in them com­ing to the at­ten­tion of po­lice. If you are the par­ent of a young per­son, speak to them about the con­se­quences of the choices they make and how the com­pany they keep can af­fect those choices. Giv­ing them bound­aries re­gard­ing where and what times they can be out also pre­vents young peo­ple from get­ting into sit­u­a­tions that may af­fect their future. - Sergeant Paul Trim­ble
