Vehicle Security

HOW SECURE IS YOUR VEHICLE? ?????

Many crimes against property are the result of a criminal

making use of an opportunity. To avoid giving them this

opportunity and to protect your property, your motor vehicle

should be secured whenever it is left unattended and valuables

should not be left in view.

Local police are keen to assist you in preventing loss from, or

damage to, your vehicle.

REMEMBER:

*SECURE YOUR VEHICLE

*LOCK ALL DOORS

*CLOSE ALL WINDOWS

*PARK IN WELL LIT

AREAS.

Preferably supervised car

parks with security cameras

rather than on the street.

Use a steering lock, vehicle security system, battery/engine

isolator, fuel cut off switch or engine immobiliser.

Remove all valuable property from the vehicle that is in view.

Consider purchasing microdots or engrave valuable

property. An engraving can be borrowed from your local police

station. Microdot can be purchased from PCYC’s.

If police locate a stolen vehicle

Service.

They will contact the registered owner, regardless of

the time of day and advise that person of the condition

of the vehicle and location. In most instances the

stolen vehicle will be held for a short time by police in

order to have scientific officers examine it for evidence.

OPERATION EMBLEM

Dear Coomera Resident,

School holidays are approaching and we need your help.

During this period empty schools provide an opportunity for criminal

activity; becoming targets for unlawful entry, arson, stealing, graffiti and

other property damage – all of which becomes a cost to the community.

The Police in the Coomera District will be working to reduce the

incidence of crime in our schools and would welcome your assistance by

reporting anyone acting suspiciously around the school grounds. Please

check your local Police Station’s number from the list below and keep it

handy to your telephone.

Your assistance in helping the Police and the community to fight

senseless vandalism in our schools is invaluable and we thank you

sincerely for taking part in this necessary endeavor.

WHAT PERSONAL

PROPERTY CAN BE

MARKED WITH

MICRODOTS

What is microdot

technology?

Microdots are an easy and

modern way of marking

property for identification.

Microdots are micro-labels,

about the size of a grain of

sand, which are engraved

with a unique PIN (Personal

Identification Number). The

dots are barely visible to the

naked eye and can easily be

applied to any household

items of value such as televisions,

DVD players and cameras.

Where can I buy

microdot kits?

Microdot kits are available

via the internet and are

available at your local PCYC

Crime Stoppers in Queensland…….

Crime Stoppers is a partnership between the community volunteer

organisation Crime Stoppers Queensland Limited and the Queensland

Police Service. Crime Stoppers is a community organisation that believes

the general public can help make a difference in preventing and solving

crime.

Contact with Crime Stoppers can be made one of two ways. The first is

through the FREE telephone hotline 1800 333 000 through which members

of the Queensland community can provide anonymous information about

criminal activity. This information is processed by the Queensland Police

Service for investigation. Callers may remain anonymous - removing fear

of retaliation or becoming involved in court proceedings. Calls are not

recorded or taped in any way. Callers are not identified electronically. The

telephone caller ID number is not able to be viewed

by Crime Stoppers. The second way to provide anonymous information is

through the www.crimestoppers.com.au The website offers the same

protection to your identity as the telephone hotline with the IP address of

the computer being removed by the secure servers.
