Elanora residents may have had a surprise over recent weeks as police on horseback patrolled the area.
The Mounted Unit was predominantly focussed on the Schuster Park area in response to reports of property crime and other anti-social behaviour.
The police horses provide an unmistakable presence capable of covering terrain not otherwise accessible by vehicle. This has proven to be an excellent deterrent to those individuals or groups present in public access areas for the wrong reasons.
There are many picturesque open areas within the Palm Beach division and local police are determined to make sure these spaces can be utilised by everyone in a safe environment.
A policing presence will continue to be maintained so that such amenities can be enjoyed by all.
