With more to come!
Tweed Valley Neighbourhood Watch, in conjunction with Tweed/Byron Local Area Command police, had a very successful Community Engagement Day last week on Friday 30 January, 2015 at Tweed City Shopping Centre.
We were joined by several police, VIPs (Volunteers in Policing), NHW volunteers including our executive board.
The words of our Tweed/Byron LAC Crime Prevention Officer, Senior Constable Bradley Foster, state it best:
Tweed Byron LAC would like to take this opportunity to thank the Tweed Heads volunteers in policing, members of the Tweed Valley Neighbourhood Watch group and the Tweed City Shopping Center management for assisting with the very successful community engagement day last Friday 30th January 2015.
We launched the new ATV for high visibility policing on local beaches and use during the numerous music festivals. We also offered the free installation of registration plate security tamper resistant screws, as a crimes prevention strategy for our local community.
Over 50 vehicles had tamper resistant screws fitted to their license plate and we met hundreds of great community minded residents and visitors.
Due to the great success of this event we will be holding others. Early murmouring suggests that the next event will be in 6 months or so.
We’ll keep you posted.
Thanks from our Tweed Valley Neighbourhood Watch Chairman, Geoff Provest.
