    • A day to be confirmed to sort and tidy chamber items in David Campbell’s Shed
    • Volunteers at Bloomhill Cancer suggested more signage regarding the public toilets is needed. Danielle suggested we also lobby council re more public toilets in Cooroy as they are not adequate
    • Australian Body Art Carnivalfollowing on from Danielle’s email and positive replies from executive, Danielle is in the process of transferring the event to Cooroy, under the auspice of Cooroy Chamber of Commerce with Danielle/Firefly Solutions to run the event. The plan is to work with other community organisations to produce the event eg Rotary, Cooroy Future Group, etc.  First stage is to survey artists to find out ideal time of year as without artists there is no event (eg Mother’s Day Weekend is not ideal because we will lose volunteers on the Sunday and artists also as they want to spend time with their mothers and/or children, Summer to hot and models sweat of paint, Winter too cold, might be good to have it fall on a Cooroy Originals weekend so we have some entertainment lined up, etc).  Also, need to look at funding options such as grants and sponsorships.  This event has in the past been approximately $100,000 event, Danielle plans to bring it back to a grass roots event and the budget can be trimmed substantially to reflect that.  Firefly Solutions will do the initial work in kind as a sponsorship until some funding is secured and Firefly Solutions will also give an undertaking to manage the budget so the event is not run at a loss financially to the Chamber (i.e. there will be event management and marketing fees to come in future but these will not be more than the event can afford to pay) – so no real risk for Chamber.

Police Report February 2016 Update

A recent event that occurred in the a Noosa Hinterland town highlights the need for shopkeepers and members of the community to be vigilant in regards shop security as well as credit/debit card security.

Shopkeepers need to be very aware of locking access points to their shops at all times when the shop is not attended even during business hours. Rear doors should always be locked even when the shop is attended as offenders use detraction tactics to lure shop attendants to the front of the store so co offenders can access the shop from the rear and steal staff wallets and purses etc.

Recently, a shop owner left the shop for a very short time for a toilet break and during that time offenders have entered the shop and stole a wallet and credit cards. The offenders then proceeded to use one of the stolen cards to make purchases under $100 using the pay wave system.

The card owner realised his wallet was missing almost immediately and cancelled all but one of his cards which he had forgotten about. This card was then used in 30 odd Fraud related offences by the offenders purchasing items with the stolen card.

Due to the vigilance and good work of a fellow business owner attending police were quickly able to positively identify the main offender and commence an investigation which has now led to the Noosa CIB arresting a 24 year old Tewantin man for 30 Fraud related offences.

Police employ a number of intelligence based systems to track offenders committing this style offence, one of which is reviewing shop CCTV footage to capture images of suspects. If you are a shop owner who is yet to enter the world of technology please give serious consideration to installing a CCTV system within your shop as this not only deters offenders it also greatly increases the likelihood of the offender being caught by police. Reduced Insurance premiums and Tax deductions are an added incentive when considering installing a CCTV system.

Shop attendants also need to be suspicious of persons entering their stores wearing caps, sunglasses and hoodies as this can often be a sign that a person has unlawful intent.

Another give away is an offender wanting to use the card multiple times in the same shop using the pay wave system to make purchases under $100. This behaviour is obviously very suspicious so in this instance do not hesitate to either ask for Identification or simply request that the person insert or swipe his card and enter his pin.

If you are suspicious of a particular person a registration number of the car they leave in is also of great assistance to police should an offence be committed.

Driver drug testing will continue in Cooroy with members of the State Road Policing Command and Local police conducting random interception sites with the specific intent of testing drivers for the presence of drugs in there system.

Drivers who use illicit drugs should be very aware that legislation now exists which creates the offence of Drug driving simply by the presence of drugs being in there system which is not like the rules related to alcohol were a prescribed amount is mentioned in the charge and an offence is only committed once that prescribed threshold is reached.

If you take illicit drugs DO NOT Drive. Mandatory license disqualification and fines exist for this offence. You have been warned.

On a different topic and if you enjoy being better informed by what is happening in your community from a policing perspective can I encourage you to have a look at the My Police Sunshine Coast Blog Site which is a site used by the Queensland Police Service to issue crime alerts and provide community news. Once you visit the site you can subscribe to the site and receive regular updates sent to your device of choice.

Police Report February 2016

cooroy police reportOn the 25th of January, 2016 Cooroy Police attempted to intercept a dark Green Toyota Corolla Hatchback in Factory St, Pomona. The vehicle failed to stop as required and sped off at high speed to avoid the police. Due to the danger such driving represented to the public, police and also the offending occupants of the car police did not pursue the car.

An investigation into the identification of the driver of the car has led to a 23 year old Cootharaba man being charged with Evading Police and Disqualified Driving and his car has been impounded for a period of 90 days. The driver now faces a court appearance in the Noosa Heads Magistrates Court charged with serious driving offences with mandatory fines of $2000 applicable and 2 years license disqualification.
