New OIC for Kuranda police
KURANDA Police Station has a new officer-in-charge
Sergeant Matt Harling started his career with the police in Rockhampton and has served in many rural locations including Biloela, Texas, Gin Gin, Mount Morgan and now, Kuranda.
Sgt Harling said he had a passion for working in small towns and enjoyed the many challenges and benefits that came from working with a small team in close-knit communities.
“I am enjoying Kuranda and can see the local community is very passionate about local issues,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to serving in Kuranda and hope together we can move forward and continue to be a great community.”
Kuranda police would like to remind the community that they provide a 24-hour policing response.
“Local police understand that having your property damaged, entered or stolen is stressful and costly, so our frontline officers are working hard to investigate all reported police matters,” Sgt Harling said.
“When you report your matter via Policelink, we receive notification via our communications officers and if we are not in the station, we can still respond promptly. If you are unsure if you require Police, call Policelink and they can contact Kuranda Police to advise.”
