CRIME REPORT - NOVEMBER 2016

As the temperature gets hotter and Christmas approaches, the risk of ‘easy pickings’ by offenders will increase, both in homes and cars. Whether you are at home or not, only leave windows and doors with security screens open. Sneak thefts always increase over summer as people try to catch whatever cool breeze is available, and the criminals will use open doors as invitations.
If you see potential criminal activity, please contact police or Crimestoppers and pass the information on. A local resident saw two cars acting suspiciously at Movieworld last and obtained photos and contacted me.  Both cars were stolen and involved in several burglaries between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The information we developed has helped to link offences together for investigators.
Burglary
12/11/2016 Maple Court: Attempt, unknown offender has attempted to gain entry to the unit by forcing a flyscreen and sliding door.  Nil entry was gained and no property stolen.
29/11/2016 Brentwood Terrace: Attempt, unknown offenders attended the victim's address in a car and attempted to gain entry to the garage by forcing doors. Nil entry was gained and nothing stolen. Linked offence

20/11/2016 California Drive: The victim's Toyota sedan was parked on the road outside the incident address. Unknown offenders have gained entry by unknown means and driven off. The vehicle was located burnt out at Manly on 21/11/2016

Australian Road Safety Foundation - Project Oxenford

According to research from the Bureau of Infrastructure and Regional Development, Queensland road fatalities rose from 223 deaths in 2014 to 242 deaths in 2015. This reversed a three-year trend in which the number of national road fatalities had been declining.


Our Neighbourhood Watch has just taken delivery of 30 wheelie bin stickers depicting life size children. The stickers, from the Australian Road Safety Foundation, have been designed to provide a real-time reminder to motorists to reduce their speed.
 





In the weeks ahead we’ll be
looking for new homes for these wheelie bin stickers and would like
 to hear from local residents who may be able to help.


Areas of interest are Michigan Dr, California Dr, Riversdale Rd, Regatta Avenue and Graywillow Blvrd.  In particular we are hoping to hear from families that live near an Oxenford Day Care centre, Kindy or the State School or who are located near a playground or bus stop. 

If you could display one of these stickers on your wheelie bin, please contact us via oxenfordnhw@email.com and please let us know your location. One of our committee members will personally come to your home on a Monday (bin day) and affix the sticker for you. We have 4 designs – of both boys and girls.
