The Slade Point NHW group have be busy brightening up telegraph poles in their area with the assistance of funding from Mackay Regional Council, Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).
Some might say, What has this got to do with Crime prevention? The answer is in the “science” of crime prevention called “Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design, (CPTED). If a place is cared for and looks like the community own the the area, there will be less crime. NHWQ is a fine example of a partnerships that QPS likes to get involved in. Partnerships have become a key technique to prevent crime. If you live in the Slade Point area get along to the next NHW meeting at the Sea Breeze Tavern on the 13th June at 5:30pm. This group is clearly kicking some quality goals.
