Hooning

Warburton Police have been dealing with incidents of hoon driving in the area.

Sergeant Tom Wilkinson is urging residents to come forward and work together after sightings of damage to roads as well as shredded tyres in Millgrove.

“Someone may have seen or heard something… That type of driving is very dangerous.”

“It impacts on road safety and the amenity of the area as well… This is not considered acceptable behaviour.

Mr Wilkinson said the station was unsure as to whether the drivers were local or coming from out of town and showing their disrespect.

“It doesn’t look god on our roads. We’re better than that,” he said.

Mr Wilkinson said that the station is continuing to work to resolve hoon driving at Mt Donna Buang.

“I’ve been working with a committee with VicRoads and Parks Victoria… It’s god to see those agencies getting involved and working together.

“This is something that we can’t just approach with police services.

“We’re endeavouring to install barriers to manage the traffic in order to return it to its tourist destination status.

“The locals are frustrated with the inaction, but we are working towards a solution.

Family violence

Warburton Police is urging families to reach out for help and advice when it comes to family violence.

“Victoria Police take family violence very seriously and we deal with it in a timely manner to make sure we get results,” Warburton Sergeant Tom Wilkinson said.

“If there are concerns, if people do have issues within their home and if they don’t feel safe then speak out sooner rather than later.

“We’re here to assist and support families and we would like to do it prior to an incident escalating as we have seen in the media recently.”

Mr Wilkinson urges individuals to contact their local police station even if they’re just looking to gain some advice on an issue.
