Council targets 3 areas

SUBSTANCE abuse, cyber crime and human trafficking are three key areas that newly-appointed Western Division Community Watch Council commander Rajendra Raghlu will target this year.

"It has been brought to our attention and also from our own observations that these are areas of real concern for people living in the division," he said.

"There has been a noted increase in young people who we suspect are involved in sex work and sniffing glue and getting involved in other criminal activity and I feel that there is an urgent need to immediately begin awareness at schools because they are the most vulnerable people."

Mr Raghlu said awareness programs would also be carried out with parents.

"Many school children have access to smart phones and tablets and while these are important tools for education, they are also an unrestricted pathway to have access to pornography and other illegal activity through the internet.

"Parents need to monitor what their children are doing on the internet."
