SCHOOL WATCH – LOOK, LISTEN, REPORT
Protective Services Group also operates the School Watch Program. This program is a partnership between Education Queensland, the Queensland Police Service and Protective Services. It aims to reduce criminal activity in Queensland schools and encourages everyone to look out for after-hours crime in our schools. If you see anything suspicious, please don't attempt to intervene. Call the School Watch number on 13 17 88, or in an emergency contact 000.
"As a school of approximately 3,200 students, Protective Services are an important part in keeping our students and facilities safe. They have always been prompt, efficient, highly effective and exceptional with their communication.
We have a very amicable relationship and they are always working in the school's interest outside of hours to ensure our resources are protected from trespassers/vandalism and the general public on site. They are non-confrontational but get the message across."
