provided the tools neces-

AS a fan of motor sports, I can truly appreciate the sound
of a revving engine and smoking tyres.
However, the location for such behaviour is on the track.
Over recent weeks several people within our community have taken
it upon themselves to dangerously drive their high-powered motor
vehicles in and around our public streets.
This is unacceptable. It is also bloody dangerous.
Every time you engage in high-speed hooning, you place valuable
lives at risk.
Last week alone, the driver of a yellow Holden Utility lost control
on Paterson Street and crashed in the vicinity of the Eldorado Motel.
While on Friday, the driver of a purple Holden Commodore Sedan
was observed by police doing burnouts and driving dangerously in
Ambrose Street. Again, this is unacceptable.
Each of the drivers has since been arrested and is being dealt with
by the courts.
To those drivers who want to engage in such behaviour, please
consider the following:
1. On the first occasion you are caught hooning – your car will be
seized for 48 hours.
2. On the second offence – your car will be impounded for a period
of 3-6 months.
3. On subsequent offences – your car will be forfeited.

Football grand final
Firstly, congratulations to the Sporties Spitfires on a hard
fought victory during the recent BAFL Grand Final.
You should all be proud of your efforts, in particular the spirit with
which you played.
For the spectators who attended – I commend you. Your behaviours
both during and after the game were outstanding.
To all the security, support staff and police who worked closely to
ensure an incident free weekend – thank you for making a difference.
To conclude, I wish to personally thank Mr Steve Edgington and the
BAFL management team for their efforts this year in coordinating a
very safe and successful season.
Your oversight and control of this year’s fixtures have ensured that
the football is once again a positive event for the Tennant Creek
IT’S that time of year again. School holidays are just about
on us and the potential for property crime can increase.
For those of you who are about to go on vacation during the Sep-
tember break please follow these basic rules around the house before
you head off:
· Let your neighbours know of your absence.
· Clean your yard and gardens.
· Secure and stow all property (outside and in).
· Lock all doors and windows.
If you have any concerns about property crime in your neighbour-
hood, or would like general advice on preventing it then don’t hesitate
to contact us here at the local Police Station. My team and I are only
too willing to assist.
IN an effort to improve the way we reduce crime and im-
prove support services to our victims, we have now in-
troduced the SupportLink Framework to Tennant Creek.
A significant amount of police work involves dealing with unmet
social issues. We often look to external agencies to meet these social
needs. However, the path to accessing government-funded agencies
has traditionally been difficult to navigate for both police and clients.
This difficulty is particularly notable for people who are Indigenous
or who are living in rural and remote communities.
The SupportLink framework now enables us to refer via a single
referral gateway embedded within their systems and gives local, state
and nationally based support agencies the ability to proactively target
vulnerable clients, in a seamless and proactive manner.
Police can also refer across states, as SupportLink encompasses a
national framework. SupportLink also provides a new level of report-
ing for partner agencies and funding bodies through remote reporting
portals within the referral system.
So what does this mean to the people of Tennant Creek?
In short, if you are somehow impacted by the effects of crime then
the SupportLink Framework will ensure relevant support services are
directed to you in a timely and coordinated manner.
