Senior Sergeant John Bouwman, OIC of Narrogin Police Station, invited residents from Popanyinning to “Have a Cuppa with a Copper”.
The community chatted to SS Bouwman and Constable Summersby about issues that were concerning them. Speeding traffic, particularly large trucks, travelling through Popanyinning township was the most pressing matter.
SS Bouwman urged residents to observe, record and report details to Crime Stoppers, as search warrants are heavily dependent on consistent and frequent information supplied to police, via Crime Stoppers.
This was the first in a series of community meetings planned for this district.
