Residents ready to fight crime

COLLINGWOOD Park residents are being urged to work together to keep their community safe.

Locals are now able to join the newly established Collingwood Park Neighbourhood Watch group which encourages residents to liaise with police and report any suspicious activity.

Sergeant Nadine Webster said groups like Neighbourhood Watch were a major asset in preventing and addressing crime in Ipswich.

"Due to the extensive development in that area, Collingwood Park is an ideal place to start a watch group," she said.

"It's about the community coming together to work with police to address community-related issues and crime.

"It's fantastic having people out and about to be the eyes and ears of the community."

The group is still looking for more members.

For more information or to join the group, contact the Ipswich District Crime Prevention Unit on 3817 1351 or visit the 'Neighbourhood Watch - Collingwood Park' Facebook page
