Safe Plate Day
Cobram Neighbourhood Watch and Cobram/Barooga Kiwanis held a local ‘Safe Plate Day’ at Woolworths in Cobram on Saturday, April 21 to warn against number plate theft.
The event was supported by local police who joined the volunteers on the tools.
Fifty-eight vehicles had the anti-theft tamper proof screws fitted, which is encouraging for anti-theft safety.
A gold coin donation along with a sausage sizzle raised in excess of $400 for Heart Kids.
Any person wanting the tamper screws can purchase them from a local hardware store or lookout for future safe plate days in Moira.
Members of the community are reminded to call 000 for police attendance. For general advice check the Victoria Police website at www.police.vic.gov.au or call your local police.
Anyone with information in relation to any offence can contact their local police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
