New officer makes his move
SPRINGSURE residents and surrounding districts have a new police officer to get to know.
Senior Constable Adam Allanson has started work at the Springsure Police Station and said he already felt at home.
“Everyone has been extremely welcoming,” Adam said of the reception he and his family received.
Adam, wife Keyra, five-year-old Cedar and almost one-year-old Camden will be getting involved in the community as much as possible.
“I love the town, I loved it the first time we came here and I want to get more involved with the school and, swimming in summer,” Keyra said.
“I will be getting involved in the Springsure Blue Light; the reason I came here was to get involved in the community,” Adam added.
“It’s still policing, but it’s the policing I have been unable to do in a city location,” he said of his move from Surfers Paradise, Nerang, Southport and Logan.
Now settled into his new position, Adam has his sights set firmly on establishing open conversations with residents of the district.
“If they have concerns about something, then as far as possible within my role as a police officer and community police officer, I will address it,” he said.
“Ultimately I will be performing the roles of an Adopt-A-Cop, as people know it, I will be going to all the schools and by the end of the year, I will have entered most, if not all, classrooms of all the schools to make myself known.”
Adam will also be taking a tough stance on unsafe and illegal activities.
Officer-in-charge Sergeant Bill Boon has welcomed the addition of Adam to his staff.
