City says thank you

SHE has seen four presidents over her seven years with Crime Stoppers, and Constable Sarah Ellis leaves an accomplished woman.

As crime prevention co-ordinator at Warwick police, Const Ellis joined the Warwick Crime Stoppers team in 2006.

"When it started up it was pretty dormant so we worked to rebuild it up again," Const Ellis said.

"We have achieved a lot in seven years - from five members to 35 - plus a lot of projects along the way."

Former president Ziggy Holter said Const Ellis played a huge role in getting Crime Stoppers up and running in the community.

"If it wasn't for Sarah, we wouldn't be where we are today," Mr Holter said. "We have all been guided by Sarah."

Const Ellis is off to be the crime prevention co-ordinator in Brisbane City and said she would miss Warwick dearly.

"I'll miss the small community and definitely the five-minute commute to work!" she said.

Const Ellis left Warwick police on Thursday.
