FOLLOWING a spate of break-ins, Tennant
Creek Police are reminding residents to ‘lock
it or lose it’.
Senior Sergeant Don Eaton called on the community to
do their part in preventing property crime in the town.
“It is important for residents to remember to lock their
homes and vehicles at night, irrespective of whether or
not they are home,” he said.
“There have been a number of reports of offenders
entering homes and vehicles through unlocked doors,”
“It only takes moments for opportunistic thieves to
take advantage of an unlocked door and help themselves
to your property.
“It is important that people are vigilant, ensure their
property is safe and report anything suspicious in a
“Lock your windows and doors, hide your car keys,
phone and wallet, always lock up your vehicle, close
your curtains when you’re not home and if you are
going away, get a friend or neighbour to check on
Senior Sergeant Eaton urged anyone who sees any-
thing suspicious to contact local police on 131444 or
Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
In other police news, the Cross Border Team (CBT)
has concluded a 14-month operation preventing can-
nabis from entering remote communities.
Initiated in November 2015, the operation targeted
the sale and supply of cannabis in Tennant Creek, Alice
Springs and surrounding communities.
Detective Superintendent Michael White said police
executed 15 search warrants on residences in the two
towns and located more than 62 kilograms of cannabis
over the course of the operation.
Superintendent White said the CBT would continue to
reduce violent crime in remote Indigenous communities
by targeting criminal networks that sought to exploit
vulnerable people in cross border regions.

GIRLS from the Stars Foundation are busy at
High School but recently they got a glimpse of
what it would be like to hit the workforce.
The students from Years 9, 10 and 11 took part in an
employment workshop where they learned how to create
résumés and participated in mock job interviews with
local employers - Group Training NT, Karen Sheldon
Training and Development, BP and Jemena.
They were assisted by the Stars Transitions Manager,
Jason Greene, who helps the girls to secure part-time
work opportunities and job placements as well as to select
training and employment pathways.
Stars Foundation Program Manager Meg Baker said the
girls were very impressive during their mock interviews.
“They had good conversation skills and demonstrated
maturity, commitment, pride and respect.
“The future definitely looks promising for these girls.”
Based at the High School, the Stars Foundation aims to
improve education and health outcomes for Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander young women.
