Sometimes an event that could seem small to one person might be the piece of the puzzle police are looking for, or even help get an investigation underway.
Sergeant Warren Ameduri runs Eyes on the Street workshops throughout WA, helping members of the community and local agencies determine what is considered suspicious and the best ways to report it.
He said the program was a coordinated intelligence gathering system that worked well to ensure important information went to the right place.
�Eyes on the Street provides the resource to capture information. It�s a formulated system of recalling and retelling the details and knowing who to call,� he said.
Sgt Ameduri said most information gathered by the Eyes on the Street program was in relation to burglaries and drugs. He said City workers, including security staff, rangers and parks workers were an important part of the intelligence gathering process and helping to make a community safe.
Sgt Ameduri will be in Booragoon next week to run an interactive workshop.
