Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP, joined Superintendent Greg Peters, St Marys Local Area Commander, to review the NSW Police Force Community Portal, which went live on Wednesday, 15 June.
“The new Community Portal represents an important innovation, in allowing Mulgoa residents to report lost property, intentional damage or graffiti and theft through a secure and efficient site,” Tanya Davies said.
The Community Portal is linked to MyServiceNSW, allowing local residents to report non-urgent crime, to make and receive updates on the reported matter and to be contacted directly by police for further information, should it be required.
“As we continue to move further into the twenty-first century, the Baird Government recognises the significance of the use of technology in improving policing, including through the use of our $100 million Policing for Tomorrow technology fund,” said Tanya Davies.
One of the many advantages the Community Portal will provide for users is the ability to complete an initial crime report from anywhere that has access to the Internet.
“In responding to changing circumstances and times, I am delighted to see the NSW Police Force and Baird Government working together, ensuring that individuals across the State are able to make timely enquires,” Tanya Davies said.
In order to make use of the portal, individuals simply need to create a MyServiceNSW account on the Service NSW website, if they have not done so already, or visit the home page of the NSW Police Force Community Portal.
“I am very much grateful for our local policemen and women, who serve us with pride and distinction and extend my thanks to Superintendent Peters for his time today. I can assure members of our community that this really is a worthwhile tool in the fight against crime,” said Tanya Davies.
