Lo­cal of­fi­cers happy to travel

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - News -

De­spite trav­el­ling up to 500 kilo­me­tres in any given shift lo­cal po­lice of­fi­cers are happy with their lo­cal sec­tor.

Mul­wala Sec­tor is made up of six po­lice of­fi­cers who cover roughly 2050 km2 of land from Mul­wala to Oak­lands and Urana.

Mul­wala Sergeant Grant Churchin said it is around 250 kilo­me­tres to drive around the border of the area they cover.

“It is not un­usual for us to do 400 to 500 kilo­me­tres in a shift,” he said.

“You do get to see some of the best land- scapes in NSW from the Mur­ray River to the ex­pan­sive farm­ing plains in Urana.

“Mul­wala Sec­tor is one of the best po­lice lo­ca­tions to be sta­tioned at in NSW with a very low crime rate and great lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties who sup­port their po­lice in en­sur­ing a safe place to live.

“The Mul­wala Po­lice Sta­tion phone num­ber is 03 5743 8099 and if you have any lo­cal is­sues you wish to raise with Po­lice please give us a call or drop in for a chat,” Sgt Churchin said.
