Engaging with the Sikh community

“The warm welcome and support from both the Sikh temple committee and the public were truly heartening.”

These are the words from Detective Sergeant Wesley Smith and Detective First Class Constable Simran Singh from the WA Police Force who had the privilege of visiting the Canning Vale Sikh Temple recently to help increase awareness of Crime Stoppers within this emerging community.

Simran spoke to the congregation in Punjabi which helped minimise any language barriers and create a good understanding of what we do and how they can work with us to help their own communities.

Some of the group had seen or heard of Crime Stoppers but assumed we were part of police; some didn’t realise they could remain anonymous when making a report to us, and for those who had more recently arrived from India, it was all completely new.

Thank you to everyone involved in this valuable community engagement initiative.
