Report Anti-Social Behaviour and Crime to Police
Moree Plains Shire Council and NSW Police Force are urging residents to report all crime including anti-social behaviour in Moree Plains directly to the Barwon Local Area Command or through to the NSW Community Portal so incidents are documented and appropriate resources can be allocated to prevent future crime.
Director of Planning and Community Development Angus Witherby explained Council recently met with NSW Police, Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and other agencies to discuss the anti-social behaviour in the Shire including rock throwing, illegal accesses to the rail corridor, and matters relating to road safety.
As a result, the first of a number of neighbourhood meetings was conducted last week, in joint initiative with Council, NSW Police, ARTC and RMS, allowing residents to express their concerns about a number of issues happening in their area.
“This was a very successful meeting with a range of problems, ideas and solutions all discussed in an open and collaborative manner; and it helped us better understand the problems that residents face in our community.”
“It also highlighted how vital community input is towards stopping anti-social behaviour and criminal activity as well as reporting lost property, intentional damage or graffiti and theft,” said Mr Witherby.
