Chance to talk Commonwealth Games with Council and the Queensland Police

Date published: 22 February 2018

Residents are invited to come and meet Townsville City Council and the Queensland Police Service at pop-up stalls promoting community safety throughout the Commonwealth Games and beyond.

Community members are encouraged to join in, find out what is happening in Townsville during the Commonwealth games and how they can participate in keeping the city safe.

The sessions will be run at Castletown, North Ward and Willows Shopping Centres.

Council’s Commonwealth Games Working Group Chair, Cr Kurt Rehbein said safety is a key priority throughout the Commonwealth Games.

“The Queensland Police Service has our full cooperation to deliver these workshops and we’re encouraging the community to get behind them as well,” Cr Rehbein said.

“We want everyone working, residing or visiting Townsville to feel safe and secure, which is the message the Queensland Police are delivering.

“We are working closely with the police and the event organisers, GOLDOC, to minimise disruption to the community during the Games, but we urge residents to be vigilant and attentive - if it seems out of place report it.”
