Pine Rivers Police – more mobile, more visible, more often

Plans are underway in Pine Rivers for a mobile police beat that will see local police, more visible, more often in the local community.

Member for Pine Rivers Nikki Boyd said the mobile police beat would be out and about across the community, ready to swiftly respond to community needs.
“This means the community will see police more often, utilising the mobile beat throughout Pine Rivers, including at community events which is a win for community safety.”
“From their mobile police beat, they will be able to take crime reports, victim statements, conduct field interviews and boost safety with a more visible policing presence.

“It’s a great plan, which will see police out and about in our community doing what they do best – keeping the community safe.

Nikki Boyd said officers operating out of the mobile police beat would be equipped with the resources they need to boost community safety.

“I know that in Pine Rivers we are privileged to have the best police in the business.

“They work hard day in, day out, to keep our community safe. Their job is not nine to five, it can sometimes be challenging, and for that we owe them a great debt of gratitude,” Ms Boyd said.

Police Minister Mark Ryan said mobile police beats are the way of the future, delivering a highly visible police presence.

“It means police are able to respond when they’re needed, where they’re needed,” Mr Ryan said.
