New faces for Proser­pine po­lice

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

TWO new faces will help keep or­der in Proser­pine with the lo­cal po­lice sta­tion wel­com­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Alan Davis from Townsville and Se­nior Con­sta­ble Tim Far­ran from Be­dourie in south-west Queens­land to their ranks.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Davis spent four years work­ing on the force in Townsville and when a po­si­tion came up in Proser­pine he ef­fec­tively swapped jobs with Proser­pine po­lice of­fi­cer Dar­ren House, who is now based in Townsville.

“A po­si­tion came up so I de­cided to make the move and I’ve been here over two months now. It’s not as busy as Townsville and Proser­pine seems like a good town with friendly peo­ple,” he said.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Far­ran has been in Proser­pine for just over a week af­ter mak­ing the move from Be­dourie, near the Simpson Desert with his wife and five chil­dren.

“It was hard be­ing by my­self all the time as the sin­gle of­fi­cer at Be­dourie so it’s nice to move here and work with oth­ers again,” he said. “Two of my girls are about to start high school and they couldn’t have done that in Be­dourie and so far we’ve all found Proser­pine to be a friendly lit­tle town.”

WEL­COME TO TOWN: Se­nior Con­sta­bles Alan Davis and Tim Far­ran are the two new po­lice­man sta­tioned in Proser­pine.
