Easy way to report non-urgent crime
HAVE you witnessed a crime?
Are you unsure how to report it?
Inspector Greg Morrow of the Warwick Police District is encouraging people to report non-urgent crime through Policelink.
If the crime is not happening now, if it is not life threatening or there is little likelihood of the suspected offenders still being in the area, remember that you can phone Policelink.
The Toowoomba Police Communications Centre is currently taking a high volume of non-urgent calls requesting varying types of police assistance however some of these calls would be better directed to the Policelink number.
"Triple zero (000) is best used for emergency calls when a crime is happening now or there is a life threatening incident," Insp Morrow said.
Mr Morrow said Policelink was established to create an easy way for people to report non-urgent crime.
"Policelink was established as a way for people to report all non-urgent incidents," he said.
"This includes wilful property damage, stealing offences, break and enters, stolen vehicles and/or lost property as well as answering non urgent general police inquiries."
Community members also have the option of reporting some matters to Policelink on-line through the QPS website online services.
For all non-urgent police reporting or general police inquiries contact Policelink on 131 444.
