Mount Compass residents, Hills Fleurieu police share conversations at community forum

Residents of Mount Compass and surrounds had the chance to ask questions and make suggestions to Hills Fleurieu police management at a community forum earlier this month.

The Police and Community Engagement (PACE) forum, held in the Mount Compass War Memorial Hall, is a regular event for police to engage with the community and hear what matters most to them.

About 50 community members heard presentations about the new gun legislations, road safety, and the ‘fatal five’, before questions were asked about road rules and issues were brought up about driver behaviour in the town and on Victor Harbor Road such as speeding and tailgating.

Other topics included opening hours of police stations around the region and timely reporting of incidents and suspicious behaviour so police can respond effectively.

​Police also received useful information from the community on traffic issues in the area which will addressed by officers from the Hills Fleurieu Local Service Area’s Highway Patrol.
