Since its commencement in October, Strike Force Viper investigators have submitted a total of 300 prosecution and youth diversion files.
This is a milestone for the Strike Force Viper team and positive news for the community of Alice Springs.
“Having a dedicated team to focus solely on property crime has seen our clear up rates improve due to the team’s knowledge of those recidivist property offenders, the way they operate and where to find them,” said Detective A/Senior Sergeant Evan Kelly.
“The Strike Force Viper team will continue to target all property offending with a focus on unlawful entries and stolen motor vehicles in order to ensure those responsible are held accountable for their offending.”
Moving into the New Year it is a timely reminder to the Alice Springs community to remain vigilant, lock your windows and doors, secure your vehicle keys in safe place and report any suspicious activity. The report of suspicious people or activity often leads to property crime being prevented before it happens.
Happy New Year from the Strike Force Viper team.
