They provide a continuous and proactive service with officers regularly patrolling and engaging with the community, to identify problems and develop strategies to solve them.

Fremantle Police officer in charge Darren Wynne said the senior constables had been selected as they possessed the right skills to coach, guide and mentor more junior and inexperienced officers and had the key ability to engage with the community.

Under Operation Peyton, the CBD team has made 28 arrests, 17 summonses for 51 charges, issued 62 move on orders and 112 traffic infringements since May 25.
