Terranora turns on criminals
WATCH out crims, Terranora has its eye on you.
Actually, 24 eyes.
At a Terranora Neighbourhood Watch meeting on Tuesday night 12 "zonies" were appointed in an effort to combat a recent spike in crime.
These 12 residents will be keeping an eye out for suspicious cars and suspicious behaviour and will be on the phone to Tweed police regularly.
Combined Tweed Neighbourhood Watch secretary Gordon Levenson said he was pleased to see more than 70 residents turn up to the meeting he chaired, with Tweed police Sergeant Stuart Crawford.
"There's a warning out for the crims now," Mr Levenson said.
"We've got zonies out now in constant contact with police.
"If anyone tries to get away with it now they better be good."
Mr Levenson said the Terranora group had always had the motivation, they simply lacked the expertise.
"We have a lot of people who want to help out," Mr Levenson said.
"The people have had a bellyful.
"It's done a lot of good for the group to be given a new direction.
"Everyone was very happy with what they heard."
