Sergeant Jode Fernie urged residents to properly secure their property.

"By ensuring homes and vehicles are locked and property secured it will decrease the likelihood of becoming a victim of an opportunist crime," she said.

"Police encourage members of the public to report any suspicious behaviour."

From the beginning of June to the end of August, the Rockhampton Police reported 744 total offences, the largest portion of which were 'good order offences', or disorderly behaviour.
