Brisbane West District Crime Bulletin

The October 2010 Brisbane West District Crime Bulletin, produced by the Police district of the same name, is available here (172Kb, PDF).

The new Police Link phone number 131 444 for non-urgent police matters is being rolled out.

Some community events were announced, all for the month of October, which we have obviously missed.

Of more interest to Ferny Grove and Ferny Hills residence is the listing of recent house and motor burglary locations in the sidebar. Its not really clear which period the numbers are covering but here are the relevant numbers for Ferny Grove and Ferny Hills

Opinion: The Queensland Police website does not make a lot of information available. The information it does have is somewhat hard to access. Sure, I can request additional information (application fee: $38 plus processing fees) but I am sure there is a lot of obviously interesting public information that should be more readily available. I don't mean to pick on the police here. Just government. Rant ends!
