TAKE LONGER-TERM VIEW AT KINGS PARK
Although overall incidents are down, thefts from cars continue in Kings Park. About one incident every three days is being reported. This is still too high. We have noticed there is often only 10 minutes between someone leaving their car and a theft. Offenders are watching, so make sure you look around when you leave your vehicle. Visitors and regulars to the park and nearby foreshores must keep their valuables out of sight in their cars. Thieves only have to look through the window, smash it, take your valuables, and your pleasant day out suddenly becomes unpleasant. - Sen Sgt Craig Davis
