The scouts enjoyed their visit and were given Police stickers when leaving.

I am delighted to advise the Neighbourhood Watch Group that Acting Senior Constable Allan WARD has arrived. Allan commenced duty at Jandowae on 8th October, 2013. Allan is a hard working Police Officer and will strive to ensure Jandowae residents are safe at all times. Allan has already made an impact and intercepted a number of vehicles and has charged a number of motorists with unlicensed driving, suspended & disqualified drivers.

I know the decent folk of Jandowae appreciate Allan's hard work and we welcome Alan and his family to Jandowae.
