Our lo­cal po­lice are ready to take on a new year of chal­lenges

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

THE new year is bring­ing fresh chal­lenges for the re­gion’s po­lice, while old is­sues will con­tinue to keep our boys in blue busy.

Lowood po­lice of­fi­cer-in-charge Se­nior Sergeant Bruce Peel said po­lice would con­tinue to im­ple­ment strate­gies to pro-ac­tively deal with the var­i­ous chal­lenges po­lice in the area faced.

Sen Sgt Peel said strong com­mu­nity col­lab­o­ra­tion would be the cor­ner­stone of a suc­cess­ful 2019 for the sta­tion.

“(This will) make the ar­eas within the Lowood Po­lice Divi­sion a great place to live, work and visit,” Sen Sgt Peel said.

The con­tin­u­ing in­flux of peo­ple into the area and the as­so­ci­ated in­creases in traf­fic vol­ume on the re­gion’s roads would con­tinue to be on­go­ing chal­lenge for po­lice, but one Sen Sgt Peel said they were ready for.

“We will con­tinue to work with gov­ern­ment and non-gov­ern­ment agen­cies and com­mu­nity groups to help an­tic­i­pate and ad­dress any de­vel­op­ing is­sues,” he said.

With a big year ahead of them, Sen Sgt Peel said he was look­ing for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to work with the “great” team at Lowood and his neigh­bour­ing sta­tions.
