Mountain Creek Neighbourhood Watch got in early to promote the upcoming Neighbourhood Watch Week taking place November 14-22.

At a local shopping centre on November 7, volunteers, local police and Cr Christian Dickson from Sunshine Coast Council spoke to residents about becoming involved in their local Neighbourhood Watch.

It was also a good opportunity to remind the community to secure their number plates with one-way screws, which makes it harder for them to be stolen.

Crimes of this nature are of great concern to the community, as stolen number plates are often used by offenders in attempts to make their identification more difficult while committing further offences.

This year, there have been 339 number plate thefts reported in the Sunshine Coast Police District, with 16 of those incidents occurring in October.

Several hundred one-way screws were distributed to shoppers as well as recycled shopping bags.

For more information on Neighbourhood Watch please contact their website.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink by providing information using the online suspicious activity form 24hrs per day at www.police.qld.gov.au/reporting.

You can report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers, a registered charity and community volunteer organisation, via crimestoppersqld.com.au 24hrs per day.
