The Camooweal Police Station was first opened in August, 1885. Since it’s conception in 1885, the Camooweal Police Station has remained at the same location.
Thanks to stakeholders such as The Myuma Group and Rockland Station, the Camooweal Police Station has recently received a face lift to its front garden.
The new face lift, as pictured above, sure makes the place look great.
The Crossroads participants from Myuma Group worked hard to put these gardens together and forging a positive relationship with the Camooweal Police.
We would like to thank The Myuma Group and the Crossroad program for putting in such a great effort to build these gardens.
These gardens are a symbol of positive change in the relationship between police and the Camooweal community.
Meanwhile Camooweal Police and Camooweal State School are proud to officially launch the Adopt-A-Cop program with their new Adopt-A-Cop, Acting Senior Constable Kathryn Woods.
This program helps the school and police form vital relationships to ensure they can work together in developing better outcomes for students.
Acting Senior Constable Woods has been working hard by getting clothes for the school students, all the way from Ipswich, by enlisting her mates from the Ipswich Police District. Together, they collected clothes to be donated to the students in Camooweal.
A special thank you must go out to the Ipsiwch Station, Client Services Officer, Tina Preston for organising the collection of clothing and also the transportation up to Camooweal.
Acting Senior Constable Woods is also aiming to begin teaching Hockey at the school on Wednesday afternoons, after playing hockey for over 25 years across several representative teams, including representing Queensland.
Camooweal Police and Camooweal State School are so excited to see where this partnership will go in the future and look forward to working together to teach the students qualities such as sportsmanship and teamwork.
