“WITH the school holidays upon us again we usually see an increase in schools being targeted by thieves and vandals during this time.
We are asking residents who live near and around schools to be on the lookout for suspicious persons seen within the vicinity of school property.
We need the community to be our eyes and ears on the street, so if you hear the sound of breaking glass or banging noises from school grounds please let us know.
We also see some young people getting themselves into trouble by keeping bad company during these times resulting in them coming to the attention of police.
If you are a parent, speak to them about the consequences of the choices they make and how the company they keep can affect those choices.
Being a responsible parent and giving them boundaries in regards to where they go and what times they go out can assist young people from not getting into situations that may affect their future.
Everyone has a role to play when it comes to crime prevention and community safety and by working together we can make our community a safer place to live.”
– South Metro Community Engagement Unit Sergeant Paul Trimble
