    A week ago I use this forum to ask if people from HHW do cold calling to mobile numbers? As I had someone call me claiming to be from NHW called Colin. I have not received a reply but my post was deleted? Should I be sending a letter to the Police Mister’s office instead?

    • Officer Dave says:

      Hello Jim,

      There may have been a technical fault with your comment.

      To my knowledge, cold calling by NHW is not a common practice, if you wish to report the matter please call Policelink on 131 444 or for further information please contact your local QPS District Crime Prevention Coordinator at your nearest Police station, which can be located at

      Thank you

    Hi, I am writing this regarding the Stafford dogs on patrol event that was on a few days ago. I’m a journalism student from QUT and I am writing a story on this event for my assessment as it is in my local area and it would be greatly appreciated if I could ask a few questions about the event and the initiative.
    It would be great to hear back and I am able to email the questions upon reply,
    Regards, Bella Gentle

  7. Crystal says:

    Good afternoon, we are trying to form a Neighbourhood watch in our area, and would like to have signs made for the individual residents that would like to have them for their homes. I was hoping to gain permission to use the image you use, as it is already nationally recognized. It would be in black and white. Can you grant permission for this to be used?

    Hi there,
    I was going for a walk this morning and a car stopped very close to where I was walking and someone got out. I am unsure, but I do think this person started to follow me. I got home fine and I am okay, but I just wanted to know if you have a list of alerts that have happened in the local area? This was a white Landcruiser car… male about 5ft10in in yellow high vis shirt… at 5:30am cleveland

    • Officer Elena says:

      Hi Rebekah,

      My suggestion to you is if you fear for your life ring emergency 000, alternatively you can ring Policelink on 131 444, Crimestoppers 1800 333 000 or your local Police Station. Good to hear that you are ok. Elena

  10. Judith Swain says:

    We live in Golden Beach and ask if it is legal for a child (age approx. 10) to be riding a motorised scooter? He travels to school each day on it, sometimes on the road, others on the paved walkway, going at fair speed. We are concerned that he either may be hit by an unsuspecting vehicle, or alternatively may run into someone out exercising or riding in a mobility scooter.

    • Officer Elena says:

      Hi Judith,
      I can understand your concern and worry about children and motorised scooters. However, without seeing the road and how the child is riding it is difficult to comment on these circumstances. My suggestion is you contact your local nearby Police Station and have them conduct patrols in the area. Thank you. Elena

      • Judith Swain says:

        Thank you for your suggestion Elena. I’m concerned that this is an accident waiting to happen, so I will go into the Police Station shortly and see if they can assist.
