SAPOL's dogs, horses and security tips feature on TV

SA Police recently featured in two TV shows - Building Ideas with some valuable tips on home and building site security, and Outdoors Indoors highlighting our Dog and Mounted Operations units.

Building Ideas - Home and building site security

Building sites are a target for opportunistic thieves who look for building materials, electrical items and tools that are quick to grab and go. Unlocked doors and windows, or unsecured tools and materials left out around a building site only help these thieves help themselves.

To help educate home owners and builders, Sergeant Andrew Skein and Senior Constable Shannan Herbert from South Australian Police were featured in a recent episode of ‘Building Ideas’ with some valuable tips on home and building site security.

Watch video (fast forward to the 6 minute mark).

SAPOL has participated in this show for the past couple of years highlighting different aspects of home security, Neighbourhood Watch and other initiatives.

Outdoors Indoors

The TV cameras were also recently turned on to our Mounted Operations and Dog Operations units who featured on the lifestyle program Outdoors Indoors.

In episode 5, Senior Sergeant Kelly-Anne Taylor from the Mounted Operations Unit talked to Dr Derek McNair about policing with the majestic greys and how important they are to the community. Watch video

In a previous episode, Police Dog Ice and his handler, Sergeant Darryn Conroy (who both retired last week) ‘chat’ with Dr Derek McNair about life at Dog Ops. Watch video
