Barossa Weekly Police Report


Police are asking residents and businesses to ensure they have secured their properties and valuables, after a number of break-ins and thefts.

  • Sheds and garages attract thieves targeting tools, machinery and sporting goods.

  • Always ensure doors and windows are locked and secured when leaving the premises. Place expensive tools in fixed, lockable tool cabinets where-ever possible.

  • Large items can be made more secure by using lockable wall brackets.

  • Consider photographing expensive tools and machinery as well as engraving them with your driving license number or other identification. This makes it easier for police to return recovered items to owners.

  • Always report the theft of your valuables to police as soon as possible and talk to your neighbours about any suspicious cars or activity in your area.
