‘Bring Beat’ Launches In Cairns

Cairns residents can now request a Mobile Police Beat be deployed to their local area as part of a new ‘Bring the Beat’ police engagement program.

Following a successful trial in Townsville, Wide Bay and Brisbane, ‘Bring the Beat’ will help inform police where community members and business owners would like to see a greater police presence.

Community members can request a Mobile Police Beat to be deployed to a preferred location as needed, providing greater access and support from policing resources as well as a high-visibility presence in hotspots.

Officers attached to the ‘police station on wheels’ will be able to discuss local crime issues and provide crime prevention and general advice to residents and business owners.

Members of the public in Cairns can now submit a form online on their local myPolice webpage and request the deployment of the Mobile Police Beat.

All requests for mobile police beat deployments will be considered in conjunction with current intelligence and operational demands.

Cairns City Patrol Inspector Jamie Horn said the initiative has already seen a positive response from other communities across Queensland.

“Residents are now able to work with police to ensure the Mobile Police Beat is deployed to the right location at the right time,” Inspector Horn said.

“This modern method of policing ensures our workforce is not restricted by traditional policing boundaries and can further ensure the safety and security of the community.”

Submit a request on the ‘Bring the Beat’ page.
