The camera at the Beachmere Boat Ramp, installed to deter crime and record incidents, has been removed and relocated to another site with a Council Spokesperson saying it was “not required”.
The camera was deemed “not required” at the Beachmere Boat Ramp due to the very low or nil rate of offences reported in the area.
The cameras have been placed around Moreton Bay region and are rotated to “hotspots” or areas with a high crime or incident rate.
Although incidents are often posted and discussed on social media, it is necessary to report the problem to the Police to ensure adequate and requisite statistics are obtained.
The length of time it takes to report an incident through Policelink, and on the Police website, can deter some people from making a complaint. However, relocatable cameras and even, police patrols, are often determined by the number of incidents in a particular area or suburb. Locals are urged to lodge a report of any incident.
If you have an emergency dial 000, otherwise report your incident to Policelink on 131 444 or at www.police.qld.gov.au.
