The Darling Downs District Crime Prevention unit is working in partnership with Masters Home Improvement Toowoomba to hold a â€˜Tradies Breakfastâ€™ on Friday, April 4th to promote â€œToolbox Secure â€“ Lose your Tools, Lose your Car = Lose your Jobâ€.
This event aims to educate â€˜tradiesâ€™ and their apprentices to highlight the value of locking and securing personal property, providing valuable information on crime trends, property identification methods, security strategies and initiatives to safeguard their property over a â€˜brekky burgerâ€™.
The â€œToolbox Secureâ€ project has been running since August 2013 in the Darling Downs and Ipswich Police Districts to promote the importance of locking and securing property targeted by thieves. This was in response to those in the trade industries experiencing theft and loss across the two policing districts.
By holding â€˜Tradies Breakfastsâ€™ we can inform and equip tradies with information that will empower them to safeguard their property by locking and securing whatâ€™s valuable to them, their tools.
The first of what is hoped will be several â€˜Tradies Breakfastsâ€™ for the Toolbox Secure Project in 2014 will be held at Masters Home Improvement at 6.30am this Friday 4th April.
