On Saturday December 21, officers from the Centenary Crime Prevention Unit, Acacia Ridge Police, Calamvale Police and Volunteers in Policing (ViPs) hosted a turn the screws event in car park of Bunnings Warehouse, Acacia Ridge.

Upstairs, police also hosted a Coffee with a Cop inside the Bunnings Café where officers spoke with the local community and were able to come together in an informal setting. Police and locals discussed community issues and built some new relationships.

Police felt appreciative of the number of locals who thanked police for all the hard work they do in keeping the community safe and one of the highlights of the day was engaging with some of the younger local community who were extremely keen to have a photo with their local police.

Our wonderful officers and ViPs were able to offer and assist over 35 vehicles with fitting free anti-theft screws to their registration plates.

These anti-theft screws were extremely popular, and owners informed us they were very pleased with the service provided.

We look forward to providing the local community with more anti-theft screw and engagement events soon.
