RE­PORT­ING CRIME AS EASY AS ABC

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Crimewatch -

WA Po­lice have ad­vice for how to re­port sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity. They sug­gest us­ing a method­olog­i­cal sys­tem such as the A-L sys­tem, which helps de­fine de­tails. It is A: age, B: build, C: cloth­ing, D: defin­ing fea­tures (such as tat­toos or scars), E: eval­u­ate (think of the per­son's height in re­la­tion to a wall or tree to gauge ap­prox­i­mate height), F: face (fea­tures, shape), G: gait (how they walk or stand), H: hair (colour, length, style), I: iden­tity (gen­der and skin tone) and L: lo­ca­tion, time and date. These will help some­one re­mem­ber the de­tails more clearly and help po­lice. – Sgt Paul Trim­ble
