This week officers from Bribie Island were called to attend several incidents involving stealing from vehicles and dwellings. Stolen bicycles were also reported several times during the week as well. In some instances property was stolen from insecure homes while the occupants were inside asleep, which is highly concerning. All residents are asked to lock their homes, check that their cars are secured, and be alert to any suspicious activity in their area.

Historically there is often an increase in this type of offences over the holiday period, so please keep an eye on your own residence and that of your neighbours. If you see anyone loitering in your area, particularly in the early hours of the morning, please contact the station. The stations Volunteer in Policing (VIP) Mr Graham Gibb, is also available to assist with home security audits. Please contact the station for more information on 3410 9222. During the month officers attended several domestic violence incidents.

If you or someone you know is living with domestic violence help is available. Please contact the station to find out more. Always call Triple Zero (000) in an emergency. Traffic enforcement is being scaled up as we head into the Easter school holiday period. Large numbers of visitors will be attending the area as per usual at this time of the year, and officers will be performing additional patrols of the Islands off-road and parkland areas. I would ask that all residents obey the road rules, and be alert to visitors travelling in our area who may be unfamiliar with our traffic conditions.

This month officers performed a large number of Roadside Breath Tests (RBT) and issued several Traffic Infringement Notices (TIN), mainly for speeding, vehicle registration and defective vehicle offences. Officers from Landsborough Road Policing also patrolled the Island during the month, and issued a number of infringements mainly for speeding. Officers from Bribie Island were also joined by the Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol during the month, who assisted police in conducting marine safety patrols of the Pumicestone Passage.

A few infringements were issued for offences including not having appropriate safety equipment on board. This month officers from Bribie Island executed several search warrants for dangerous drugs. The supply of dangerous drugs in our community is a serious issue, and my officers and I are appreciative of the ongoing support we receive through the provision of crime stoppers information about this activity. If you have information which may assist police in investigating drug offences, please contact the station or ring Crime Stoppers.
