Police are urging residents within the Sunshine Coast, particular rural areas, to be attentive to their own homes and their neighbours security.

Breaks ins around rural properties in areas of the Glasshouse Mountains, Bald Knob and Maleny could be considered ‘easy targets‘, due to residents often leaving doors and windows unlocked and neighbours are often not close to witness incidents.

Members of the public have reported to police of suspicious behaviour of undesirables driving on back roads, mostly reported to be in stolen vehicles.

Police would like to remind members of the public, no matter your post code to remain aware of home and vehicle security.

Home and vehicle security reminders;

  • Keep valuables out of plain sight.
  • Keep all fuel tanks and pumps locked and disabled.
  • Lock the house, including doors and closing windows.
  • Do not leave remote controls and house keys in unlocked vehicles, this will give access into home effortlessly.
  • Maintain that all machinery, tools and equipment are stored in a secure area, reframe from leaving keys in ignitions.
  • Engrave or mark property and prepare a detailed inventory of personal, household and farm valuables.
  • Consider immobilisers to all equipment.
  • Consider installing security CCTV cameras.

Resident are encouraged to report any unusual or unknown vehicles in the area, take photos of vehicles if a safe opportunity is present.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using the online form 24hrs per day.

You can report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers, a registered charity and community volunteer organisation, by calling 1800 333 000 or via 24hrs per day.
