Barossa Weekly Police Report


Police recommend clearly marking, painting, engraving or photographing tools and property, and recording serial numbers. This not only helps to prevent thefts, it makes it more difficult for thieves to dispose of stolen items - and makes the identification and return of stolen property easier.

Tradies are also urged to be vigilant about securing their vehicle, both on and off the work site. Keep your vehicle locked at all times. Gawler Police urge the public to report any suspicious activity to the Police Assistance line immediately on 131 444.

Timely reporting can greatly assist police in stopping crime, arresting offenders and – in the case of offences such as theft – reuniting property with its lawful owner.
