Business owners in Noosa Junction received a visit from local police and Volunteers in Policing to discuss business security.

Businesses received an information pack which included a Key Holders form, Shop stealing brochure and pay-wave credit card fraud information.

The Business Key Holders form is valuable to both police and business owners as it ensures up to date contact details are recorded should an after hours emergency occur.  It also alerts police as to whether there is CCTV coverage for the business.

The information pack included a flyer with information on Shop Stealing and helpful tips to help prevent theft occurring.  This was reinforced with some useful business security tips including;

  • Installing a door alarm which activates as the store is entered to alert staff to a customers presence;
  • Ensuring that you have secure cash handling and banking procedures in place.

Pay Wave Credit Card Fraud information was also well-received by businesses with a reminder that identification can be asked to confirm customers details if there are concerns.

The feedback from business owners was very positive and Noosa Police appreciate the continued support from the community.

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.
