Yesterday, May 18, Woodridge Police Beat in conjunction with Logan District Crime Prevention Unit organised a Safe Pl8 event at the Logan Central Shopping Plaza located on Wembley Road, Logan Central.
Six Volunteers in Policing (VIP) from Browns Plains, Crestmead, Beenleigh and Logan Central stations assisted Logan Central police hold this event.
Throughout the morning both police and VIPs fitted sixty-six vehicles with free one way screws over the course of the morning, as well as provided the local community with information on personal and vehicle safety.
The ‘Safe Pl8’ campaign has been implemented as a crime prevention measure which aims at decreasing the rate of stolen registration plates from vehicles within the community.
Stolen registration plates are often used by criminals to commit further offences such as placing them on stolen vehicles, petrol drive off offences and toll road evasion. In order to make vehicles more secure, police and VIPS can apply one-way screws to the vehicle in order to make it difficult for registration plates to be removed by thieves.
Woodridge Police and Logan District Crime Prevention Unit would like to thank all of the VIPs who attended to assist with the event. It is envisioned that Woodridge Police Beat will hold another Safe Pl8 day in the near future.
If you would like safe plates fitted to your vehicle please contact Logan District Crime Prevention Unit on 3826 1800 and we can arrange for an appropriate time for your plates to be correctly fitted with one way screws.
