There has been an increase in vandalism occurring across the Narromine Shire and residents are reminded to report any unusual behaviour.
Narromine Shire Council has a Vandalism Rewards Scheme Policy in place to try and minimise the cost of vandalism where the community is encouraged to report vandalism and vandalism activity, said Narromine Shire Council, General Manager, Mrs Jane Redden.
“Unfortunately, the kind of vandalism the community has been experiencing is occurring at sites where building or construction is underway. The Cale Oval site has been experienced two (2) break ins during the week, and there is significant damage to the new building.
Public toilets are also regularly targeted by vandals and significant destruction to these facilities is extremely costly to Council.
We would like to think irrespective of any reward, the community will report anything they know,” said Mrs Redden
The policy does offer a reward (maximum of $5,000) to persons providing information on vandalism to Council owned or managed property that results in legal action being taken this includes criminal proceeding resulting in a conviction, finding of guilt or offence; formal caution/warning issued by a NSW Police Force Officer; or a juvenile justice conference administered under the Young Offenders Act 1997.

Please call NSW Crime Stoppers to report vandalism or unusual behaviour on 1800 333 000 and in the case of an Emergency always call 000.
