Police reveal Rocky region target areas for traffic safety blitz

TRAFFIC offence hot spots will be the target on a Rockhampton region-wide crack down.

As the school year draws to a close, police presence will ramp up across the Rockhampton region.

Queensland Police Service will reinforce the "anywhere, anytime” message, cracking down on crime and traffic offences across a number of locations including Fairy Bower, Gracemere, Bouldercombe, Kabra and Stanwell.

In the Gracemere community, police will turn their attention to increasing safety on local roadways leading into the end of the school year.

Sergeant Anthony Houston said every death and serious injury on our roadway is a human tragedy with lasting consequences for family and the entire community.

"With the festive season approaching we don't want anybody missing their loved ones at the Christmas table,” Sgt Houston stated.

Members of the community are encouraged to contact Policelink on 131 444 or their local station if they have any information relating to offences being committed on the roadway. If you are in an emergency, dial triple zero (000).

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au 24 hours a day.

For all non-urgent police reporting or general police inquiries contact Policelink on 131 444 or Policelink.qld.gov.au 24hrs a day.
