With the New Year upon us and visitor numbers increasing to our local beaches Maroochydore Police were out and about last week talking to the community in the Mobile Police Facility (MPF) as part of Operation ROCIT (Reducing Opportunity Crime in Towns).

Police provided information on crime prevention, conducted RBTs and also took the opportunity to patrol surrounding car parks, beaches and residential streets to provide a highly visible presence in the area.

Volunteers in Policing (ViPs) were also on hand to assist police in getting the property security message out to the community.

Information was distributed to visitors on the importance of securing their vehicle and removing valuables from vehicles even when parked at home.

As part of an overall community education operation a Variable Message Sign was installed in Alexandra Parade to reinforce that property crime can be prevented.

Maroochydore Police will continue high visible patrols these school holidays and ask the community for their assistance in reducing crime by:

  • Locking vehicles and removing valuables, even whilst 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, around campsites including bicycles.
  • Report any suspicious activity to police

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 crimestoppersqld.com.au 24hrs per day.
