Lock it or Lose it:

Charleville police are reminding the community to ensure that their houses and vehicles are locked and secured and any valuables removed from within vehicles. As has occurred on a number of occasions within the last fortnight, opportunistic theft occurs when valuables are left in unlocked vehicles or dwellings left insecure.


Traffic Enforcement Operation

Charleville police are continuing with ongoing traffic enforcement operations.

Police will be performing traffic enforcement using mobile radar, patrols, speed camera and random breath and drug drive testing as part of an ongoing commitment to reducing road trauma.

Three traffic infringement notices have been issued for exceeding the speed limit, one for using a mobile phone while driving and one failing to wear a helmet in the last ten days.

A 32-year-old Charleville man was intercepted in King St, Charleville on April 27.

Police conducted a number of inquiries and subsequently arrested and charged the male with unlicensed driving. His vehicle was also impounded for 90 days.

He will appear in the Charleville Magistrates Court on July 27.



As part of the response to Covid-19, police are continuing ongoing planning to maintain frontline capability in supporting Queensland Health and the Government.

Charleville Police are assisting with hard border closures with drivers and passengers being turned around where necessary and enforcement of compliance for self-isolation and mass gatherings.

Police are issuing infringement notices for non-compliance and encourage all members of the community to maintain social distancing and not take part in mass gatherings.

There have been a number of changes easing the restrictions in place by the Chief Medical Officer and Senior Sergeant, Officer in Charge at Charleville police station, Mick Symes encourages everyone to get on to the Queensland Government web site and stay updated with such changes.

Covid19 social distancing rules have not been lifted but remain in place. Police will issue infringement notices where people are blatantly disregarding the social distancing rules.
