Hooning top of the agenda
HOONING is a problem that's widespread across the Gold Coast.
On May 18, the Palm Beach, Elanora and Burleigh Community Consultative Committee will host a meeting at the Currumbin RSL with the traffic branch's Senior Constable Mark Keogh as guest speaker.
A veteran of the Gold Coast Road Policing Unit, Sen Const Keogh says he'll give out information at the meeting about the "hooning hotline", 13HOON.
"We get a lot of complaints," he said.
"If we've got a registration number, we usually go around and talk to them."
Police are able to give warnings to offenders, and even impound cars after a number of offences.
Committee chairman Ian Grace said the combined Burleigh, Palm Beach and Elanora (Police) Community Consultative Committee was established to develop a partnership between the police and the community, and meets every three months in an open forum.
"Everyone likes to feel safe in their community and this is a great opportunity for the public to share information and air any concerns, fears or grievances they may have, so the police are able to act accordingly - with hooning being a current hot topic."
The community meeting on Thursday, May 18, starts at 6pm.
