BURLEIGH POLICE COMMUNITY CONSULTATIVE COMMITTEE
The Burleigh Heads Police CCC has been established to develop an effective community safety and crime prevention partnership between the Police and Burleigh Heads wider community, allowing police to service the community in an informed and co-operative way.
The Police CCC will have potential to identify underlying problems that can lead to crime and disorder, and through the development of collaborative partnerships with State Government, local government, the business, and residential communities, work together to address those issues.
Membership of Burleigh Heads Police CCC will be broadly based, ensuring that a cross-section of community input on issues of policing concern is obtained.

There are simple steps that can taken to protect a home or business from graffiti vandalism. Graffiti vandals crave recognition and ownership of public open space. The following recommendations have potential to reduce the likelihood of your property being vandalised.
Prevention: (Graffiti Target Reduction)
The following measures are more effective if used in combination:
Vegetation Plan tress, vines, shrubs or spiky plants that restrict pedestrian access to or along vulnerable walls and fences.
Lighting. A well lit area helps deter graffiti vandalism and other property crime.
Anti-Graffiti Surfaces. Try to avoid plan, smooth surfaces or fences. Patterned and rough concrete surfaces are preferable, or chain link , or wooden paling fences. Shiny tiles or mosaic surfaces are also effective.
Dark Paints and Coatings. Painting vulnerable walls or fences in a dark colour restricts graffiti vandals to white, yellow, silver or gold paint to be effective, Dark colours also reduce painting repair costs. Always have extra paint of the same colour as your fence, walls and other painted surface available.
Sacrificial Coating. There are several different types of graffiti resistant paints and finishes available from paint stores.
Best Response: ( As soon as graffiti occurs)
Free Graffiti Removal Service
Gold Coast City Council provides a free graffiti removal service. Call the council Graffiti Hotline at 5581 7998.
Remove graffiti tags within 24 hours! This is the most effective prevention strategy involving self removal of graffiti immediately once discovered, or, covering graffiti over until removal by the Council’s free graffiti removal service.
Graffiti is a crime that should be reported to Police.
