Help the police do their job


WITH a recent spike in break and enter type crimes in Kingaroy, the public should be mindful of how to best protect their properties.

Senior Constable Jessica Lynch has been running an outreach program with businesses in the Dalby-Burnett patrol region.

She said there were four things the public could do to prevent crime and help with police investigations.

Keep a list, serial numbers and receipts of all your valuable items.

If possible engrave them with a personalised mark to identify them as your own.

Lock your houses up. Snr Const Lynch said unfortunately, people were targeting the trusting and laid back nature of country folk.

Don't make it obvious that you are away. Get to know your neighbours and keep an eye out of anything suspicious.

If you see something report it straight away.

The best places police would love to see CCTV is at access and entry points to businesses, sheds and homes.

No one likes 'dandruff cam' so cameras looking down at people's heads are not effective. Place them so police can see faces and registration plates.
