Use common sense on 1 Jan say police

WHILE many are concerned the year 2000 New Year’s Eve celebrations will provide an opportune time for domestic burglary, the best preventative measure is common sense, says WA Police Department’s Inspector Fordham.

“A lot of people have a comical image of criminals running amok through the streets on New Years Eve,” Inspector Fordham said.

“We advise people check their security alarms are properly set. Check with your security company to ensure their systems are Y2K compliant.

“Beyond that, the police can’t offer any more advice. We definitely don’t want people calling the police when their microwave goes on the blink,” he said.
