On Monday September 4, officers from Browns Plains Police Station attended the monthly Forestdale Neighbourhood Watch meeting.
Community members attend the monthly meetings in Abbey Street, Forestdale as well as representatives from State and local government, Minister Leanne Enoch (State Member for Algester) and Councillor Laurie Smith (Logan City Council).
Forestdale NHW Police Liaison Officers, Senior Constables Ella Briscoe and Leanne Cole (Browns Plains Police Station), also regularly attend the meetings to provide a monthly policing wrap-up of the area.
The meeting is an excellent forum for community members to meet socially as well as to discuss local matters affecting their neighbourhood.
The meetings also discuss and plan many community events held throughout the year within Forestdale, including Halloween in the Park, Christmas Carols, Easter Parade, Santa Float and other community events.
Monday’s meeting was also the Forestdale NHW AGM. Local resident Jocelyn Marentis was nominated for, and accepted the important role of Area Coordinator.
The Forestdale NHW has been operating for approximately 27 years with the continued support of police from Browns Plains Police Station.
Local residents are encouraged to attend the monthly Forestdale NHW meetings to provide input into their community.
Browns Plains Police congratulate Jocelyn on her new role as Forestdale NHW Area Coordinator.
