As the weather is getting hotter a number of our community members are enjoying the outdoors, Police ask you to be mindful of your neighbours and keep stereos turned down to a minimum. If you are not sure if your music is too loud then walk outside of your fence line, if you can hear the music you are committing a Breach of the Peace and can be fined heavily. Most of the complaints Police receive are in relation to loud base music, perhaps turn the base off this will enable you to listen to your music without annoying your neighbours. Jandowae is a flat town and noisy stereos can be heard several streets away at times .

If you are unfortunate enough to have neighbours who play loud music do not hesitate to ring Policelink 24/7 on Ph: 131444. Sometimes it is better for neighbour relations to talk to your neighbour in the first instance and ask them to turn their music down, if this is unsuccessful then ring Police immediately via Policelink on Ph: 131444. If you are having a party/celebration drop into the Police Station and register the party, this way if we do start to receive noise complaints we will ring the responsible adult present and make them aware complaints are being received.


On Friday 24/10/2014 Jandowae Police took possession of our new Ford Territory AWD, this vehicle replaces the Hyundai Sante Fe. We are extremely happy with the Territory and especially the full length bull bar fitted which makes night time driving safer for the staff at Jandowae Police Station.
