Sergeant Max Mokrij from City Police Station said senseless damage like this was damaging to the whole community.
“It’s particularly disappointing as we’ve just started Operation School Safe. We’re trying to send the message out that police and the community won’t tolerate this behaviour. We’ll be doing everything we can to make sure these offenders are identified,” Sergeant Mokrij said.
“We’ll continue to focus our efforts on reducing damage in our schools for the remainder of these holidays. I ask everyone to keep a close eye on their local schools, and report anything suspicious to police”.
ACT Policing urge anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information to contact CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
