Maroochydore Police delivering security messages two wheels at a time

Published:

Senior Constable Sandy Atkinson on 

Maroochydore Police were out and about over the weekend in our Mobile Police Facility as part of Operation ROCIT (Reducing Opportunity Crime in Towns).

Police took advantage of the weekend’s perfect weather and took to the Sunshine Coast streets on pushbike to hand out important information on crime prevention and patrol surrounding car parks, beaches and residential streets.

Maroochydore Police took advantage of the sunny weather and patrolled the area via pushbike

Officers were also out doing roadside breath testing as part of the operation.

Our wonderful Volunteers in Policing (ViPs) were also on-hand to help us get our security messages out to the community.

It was great to have a chance to talk to you all about the importance of securing your vehicle and removing valuables from cars, even when they’re parked at home.

Maroochydore Police will continue highly visible patrols and ask the community for their assistance in reducing crime by:

  • Locking vehicles and removing valuables, even when they are parked at home, in driveways or on the street
  • Lock garages; do not have valuables on display, especially in open garages where the roller door is left up
  • Secure property, including bicycles
  • Report any suspicious activity to police
