Summer is peak time for beach activities!
Unfortunately bigger crowds can sometimes lead to an increase in anti-social behaviour and property theft.
The City of Cockburn, in cooperation with WA Police and Crime Stoppers, will host a beachside crime prevention stall on Saturday, 8 February 8.30-11.30am at Ngarkal Beach, Port Coogee Marina.
The first 100 bike owners who register their cycles with Bikelinc, a digital register of bicycles linked with WA Police, will receive a free D-lock.
D-locks are stronger than chain link locks and less likely to be cut by thieves.
Locals will have a chance to chat with local WA Police, Crime Stoppers and City of Cockburn community safety representatives about local community crime concerns.
The free event will be held at a small stand at the beach off Medina Parade.
