Spe­cial anti-theft event

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News -

PO­LICE of­fi­cers will be fit­ting free anti-theft screws for ve­hi­cle num­ber plates to sup­port the 2019 Spe­cial Olympics World Games WA ath­letes at Repco Vic­to­ria Park on Satur­day.

Law En­force­ment Torch Run (LETR) WA vol­un­teers will hold a sausage siz­zle and Repco will donate the screws.

Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Chris New­man said he was vol­un­teer­ing at the event as a way to com­bine crime pre­ven­tion and com­mu­nity sup­port.

“Stolen num­ber plates can be used by crim­i­nals to avoid de­tec­tion as they com­mit crimes in the com­mu­nity,” he said.

“The anti-theft screws are a sim­ple way to re­duce this crime and re­mov­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for as­so­ci­ated crimes to im­pact upon com­mu­nity mem­bers.”

LETR sup­ports ath­letes with in­tel­lec­tual disability and will help a small group of ath­letes to com­pete at the World Games in Abu Dhabi in March.
