Tomakin Community Association
👮♀️👷🏻♂️👮♂️👩🏽🔧👮♀️👩🏻🌾👮♂️👨🏾🏫👮♀️🧕🏻👮♂️ Community and Police come together!
More than 60 community members attended the Tomakin Community Association General Meeting last Thursday at the Tomakin Sports and Social Club. Guest speakers were Sgt Mark Dudley and Insp Greg Flood from the Batemans Bay Police Station to discuss recent vandalism in Tomakin.
The community shared their concerns about the vandalism and the police officers provided a range of useful suggestions.
The key message for the community is that the police are doing everything they can, but they need the community to report ANY suspicious activity or acts of crime to the police, as even a minor piece of information may be key for them to assess the whole situation.
Reporting can be done by calling the Police Assistance Line on 131444, Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 (you can choose to provide information anonymously), Triple Zero (000) for incidents that are currently happening , the online NSW Police Force Community Portal for non-emergency reports (through MyServiceNSW website), or call the Batemans Bay Police Station on 44720099.
The outcome of the meeting was that the community needs to watch out for each other, monitor activities around both private and public property, ensure personal property is secure, and as mentioned previously, report all incidences, no matter how small, to police. If you know your neighbours are away on holiday or it is a holiday house, keep a special eye out for anything out of the ordinary. To prevent your power being turned off while you are away, a special ‘standard’ lock for your electricity meter box can be purchased - all meter readers carry a key which will allow them access.
TCA is extremely grateful to Sgt Dudley and Insp Flood for attending the meeting and will continue to liaise with them to keep the community informed on issues as appropriate.
👀 Let’s all keep our eyes peeled and look out for one another!!! 👀
