Police to listen up on crime concerns of Warwick locals

WARWICK police are calling on the community to speak up about their concerns.

Acting crime prevention co-ordinator Constable Wendy Tamblyn will listen to suggestions on what people want to hear about, in a crime forum planned for later this year.

The forum will tackle the most pressing issues community members face and will allow two-way communication with police.

"This is Warwick's chance to give me what they want to hear about," Const Tamblyn said yesterday.

"It's their forum, not police giving a lecture. It's about what they want to hear.

"A concern might be the youth that hang out the front of the shopping centre, and if that is the issue, then we need to address it."

Guest speakers will be present on the night, specialising in particular areas of public concern.

"If it's fraud people want to hear about, I'll get the guys in from the department that deals with that," Const Tamblyn said.

The initiative comes as the Warwick police work together with Neighbourhood Watch Queensland to revitalise the Neighbourhood Watch name and reinforce its message.

"The aim is to work with the community to make it a safer and more supportive community and encourage members to actively be involved with us and to help prevent and reduce crime," Const Tamblyn said.

"From this forum we want a good outcome for the community - something that will work."

Keep an eye on the Daily News for suggestion forms, where you fill out what your concerns are and drop the form off to the Daily News office, and we will pass it on to the Warwick police.

A date is yet to be set for the forum, but on the night, a lucky winner will be drawn from the suggestion box and will win a free home security audit from Warwick police.
