On Sunday Coolum Police got out and about in the community to spread the crime prevention message at Pacific Paradise State Schools 25th Birthday celebrations. Senior Constable Marlene Fisher and myself attended the school celebrations and spoke with members of the public about ways to keep their homes and property secure.
They also spoke with MLA Fiona Simpson and community leaders about current issues in the area and how to help reduce crime. The school kids were also given a tour of the Coolum patrol car and finger printed and stamped as “Police Friends” and spoken to about the importance of wearing seat belts.
On Tuesday Officer in Charge of Coolum Station Senior Sergeant Hardy Wirth and Senior Constable Fisher also attended North Shore Trades Association and met with business owners to discuss a range of issues. Topics of discussion included business security, removing cash from premises, CCTV cameras, station crime reduction measures and crime prevention strategies.
It was also identified through the meeting that a number of business owners work from home and even though Coolum Police have been out in their division selling the crime prevention message some of the business’s may not have been captured. We have enclosed a link below to download the Self Assessment Checklist to be able to self audit your business premises.
Coolum Police will also attend the Twin Waters Residents Associations Birthday Celebration this Sunday commencing at 12pm at Lake view Park, Lake View Drive Twin Waters.
