Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

With tourists set to flock to and through our re­gion, Wa­roona po­lice urged peo­ple to be­have re­spon­si­bly and safely, es­pe­cially on the road.

Wa­roona po­lice of­fi­cer-in-charge Act­ing Sgt Taryn Bowie said Christ­mas was al­ways a busy time for of­fi­cers due to hol­i­day mak­ers trav­el­ling south.

“We’ve had some pretty hor­ri­ble crashes on South Western High­way al­ready which makes the mes­sage to stay safe even more im­por­tant,” Act­ing Sgt Bowie said.

“We want ev­ery­one to have a safe hol­i­day sea­son so slow down, pay at­ten­tion and don’t drink and drive.”

He said Wa­roona Dam was a hotspot for hol­i­day mak­ers and was fa­mil­iar call out for po­lice.

“Peo­ple also need to re­mem­ber that Wa­roona Dam is pri­vate prop­erty and they can be kicked off if they’re mis­be­hav­ing,” she said.

“Re­spect your­self and your neigh­bours and ev­ery­one will have a good time.”

Act­ing Sgt Bowie said peo­ple could ex­pect to see po­lice out in force con­duct­ing ran­dom breath tests and tar­get­ing speed­ing.
