POLICE officers will be fitting free anti-theft screws for vehicle number plates to support the 2019 Special Olympics World Games WA athletes at Repco Victoria Park on Saturday, December 15.
Law Enforcement Torch Run WA volunteers will be holding a sausage sizzle and Repco will donate the anti-theft screws.
Proceeds from the sausage sizzle and donations during the fittings will support local Special Olympics athletes.
Joondalup Police acting senior sergeant Chris Newman said he would be volunteering at the event as a way to combine crime prevention and community support.
“Stolen number plates can be used by criminals to avoid detection as they commit crimes in the community,” he said.
“The anti-theft screws are a simple way to reduce this crime and removing opportunities for associated crimes to impact upon community members.
“In addition to this, LETR supports athletes with intellectual disability and we are particularly proud to be supporting a small group of athletes who are preparing to compete at the World Games in Abu Dhabi in March.”
The sausage sizzle will be held from 9am to 2pm and the anti-theft screw fittings will be held from 10am to midday.
