Police make 120 arrests in Operation Telepathic

A noticeable increase in police presence in Geraldton over the last few weeks was linked to Operation Telepathic.

The operation focused on a surge in resources in key locations, whilst targeting individual offenders who are known to be criminally active.

Specialist staff from the Police Mounted Section, State Traffic and Perth K9 were involved in the operation to date, and the Police say they have received positive feedback from the Geraldton community.

Within the five week period of the operation so far, over 120 arrests were made for offences including burglary, stealing and anti-social behaviour.

Ongoing actions will include a youth focus with heightened engagement, with partner agencies to address the causes of youth offending.

The public can expect a continuing increase in foot patrols by police around the CBD and shopping centres to promote greater accessibility to the police for the public.
