UIL charge – Brisbane North

Queensland Police Service on Friday, 16/06/2017 12:12 AEST

Police are continuing to highlight the dangers of drink driving after an incident earlier this month where a motorist came close to crashing on a major arterial road.

Officers from Sandgate Station were called to attend the Gateway Motorway at Nudgee on June 9 following reports of a woman driving dangerously.

Dashcam vision obtained from a member of the public (below) shows the vehicle allegedly swerving across the road, narrowly missing a tree and colliding a number of times with roadwork barriers.

Police managed to intercept the vehicle on Childs Road and confronted the 40-year-old female driver who allegedly appeared intoxicated and was disqualified from having a driver’s licence.

The Caboolture woman was transported to Pine Rivers Watch House where she returned a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of .297, almost six times the legal limit.

She was charged with high range drink driving and driving without a driver’s licence and is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on June 30. The vehicle involved was also impounded by police.

With school holidays approaching police are reminding the public that drink driving is not only a criminal offence, but one of the major contributors of road deaths and injury crashes.

Motorists are urged to re-think getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol and make sure everyone arrives home safe from their journey.

Crime Stoppers now in Hervey Bay

Queensland Police Service on Friday, 16/06/2017 11:33 AEST

For 30 years Crime Stoppers has become a household name in crime reporting across Australia and now Hervey Bay has established its own Crime Stoppers Volunteer Area Committee. Making the announcement, Detective Inspector Gary Pettiford said establishing the committee will provide the city with one of the most effective tools in the fight to solve crime.

“Our Queensland program has some of the best results per capita in the world and I am confident residents in Hervey Bay will become even more vigilant in helping to solve crime in the area,” Detective Inspector Pettiford said.

“There has been a Crime Stoppers committee in Maryborough for many years I am elated that we have been able to have a committee established in Hervey Bay made up from local volunteers.

“Operating throughout Australia, Crime Stoppers has become an integral part of the community safety with the information gathered and supplied by the community essential to assisting our police agencies with crime solving and prevention.

“At the very core of our program is the provision of a telephone hotline, 1800 333 000, website and mobile app for members of the community to provide anonymous information about suspicious or criminal activity. This information is electronically sent to a central unit and then distributed to the police establishment nearest to where the crime or suspicious activity is occurring for investigation.

“The information gathered through the Crime Stoppers program is amazing:

Over 860,848 phone calls and 59,242 website reports (web only since March 2007);

Over 35,412 offenders arrested with some 94,444 charges preferred;

Solved 25 Murders and 21 Attempted Murders;

Seized over $648 million worth of drugs;

Recovered $11 million worth of stolen property; and

Seized over $5.2 million in proceeds of crime.

“I am confident the Crime Stoppers program in Hervey Bay will be a great success,” Detective Inspector Pettiford said.
