Armed Robbery Awareness Presentations – This week Coolum Police provided Armed Robbery Presentations to Surfair Beach Hotel and local businesses. Officer in Charge of Coolum Police Senior Sergeant Hardy Wirth and Volunteers in Policing conducted a presentation session on what to do in, during and after the unfortunate event of an armed robbery.
Senior Sergeant Wirth said whilst the likelihood is relatively low in the Coolum Division we want all business owners and their staff to be prepared for such an event. We also want them to take adequate precautions and engage strategies that will protect their business from opportunistic offenders .
“There are strategies that employers can adopt that will help protect them, their business and their staff against these types of offences,” he said.
“By adopting some of these strategies it makes it harder for offenders, reduces the outcomes and makes them less likely to be a target.”Senior Sergeant Wirth said.
Police will be conducting further sessions at North Shore Tavern next Tuesday, June 19 at 8am.
If you are a owner of a small business and wish to attend these presentations please RSVP to SCRO.Coolum@police.qld.gov.au
