A mere two weeks into the chair as new police inspector and Evan Quarmby made himself right at home during Classic Yass – by showing off his beloved 1911 Cadillac.
The new Goulburn Local Area Command inspector has returned to the Yass police station after a three year hiatus in Bowral.
He was last serving as inspector in Yass between 2006 and 2009.
“My intention is to spend quite a bit of time here [in Yass],” he said. He will be based predominantly at the Yass station.
“It gives me an opportunity to become closely involved in the community, looking at specific Yass issues and how we can provide a better service for the community.”
He says he developed strong ties within the shire previously and now hopes to establish new community contacts as well.
“I strongly believe that the closer police align themselves with community issues, the greater our ability to prevent crime.”
He will focus on engaging all facets of the local community, from “local business to community groups, local government, and individuals who have issues that we can assist with”.
He said the Yass Valley is a growing area, which presents “special challenges”.
“We want to make sure we pin down what the local issues are.”
