New police beat rolls into Redcliffe
Words by Jodie Powell

A state-of-the-art ‘police station on wheels’ launched in Redcliffe last week as part of the Queensland Police Service’s expansion of Mobile Police Beats.

Police Minister and Morayfield MP Mark Ryan joined Assistant Commissioner Brian Connors for the official launch of the second mobile beat for the Moreton District.

The mobile beats provide a high visibility policing presence in the community, as well as immediate access to vital policing services.

Kitted out with a range of technology and equipment, the mobile vans enable police to deliver services directly to the community.

“MPBs are a fully functional police station on wheels that we can deploy and relocate to areas where it may be needed,” Assistant Commissioner Connors says.

“They are a resourceful facility that enables more visibility and more active patrols.”

Moreton District’s first mobile police beat launched in June, 2022 and is being used as part of Operation Victor Unison, which focuses on investigating and preventing youth crime in the community.

“Both Moreton District’s MPBs will continue to be deployed to hot spot locations across the district, to provide further flexible policing and to strengthen community safety outcomes.

“I encourage members of the public to engage with MPBs, whether it be to report a crime or to seek advice and support from local police.”
