Bargara Police were recently allocated a new Can-Am all terrain vehicle (ATV) to add to their fleet for local patrols.

The ATV was purchased from a local business and will be stationed at Bargara for use throughout the Bundaberg patrol area.

Officer-in-charge at Bargara Station, Sergeant Matt Steinhardt, said it was a great community policing initiative.

“Bargara Police would like to send a big thank you to the Bargara Progress Association who supported the purchase of safety and recovery equipment for the ATV,” he said.

“The ATV will predominately be used for patrolling the beach and public park lands and also has the capability to be deployed to search and rescue land operations as well as police operations involving rural properties,” Sergeant Steinhardt said.

“It will be a great asset for accessing those off road places we sometimes have to get to.”

Bargara Progress Association treasurer Shelley McDonald said the association was pleased to be able to help, with rust proofing and accessories.

“This ATV will be well used by our local police officers, along with those QPS officers further west and will assist greatly with search and rescue operations amongst other necessary requirements,” said Shelley.

“On behalf of Bargara Process Association, we are extremely proud to be able to contribute towards something that will assist the local community and we feel so fortunate to be involved.”

“Next time you are at the beach or in a park at Bargara, look out for our bright yellow ATV,” Sergeant Steinhardt said.

“Or come and see it on Saturday, March 28, at the Community Safety and Emergency Services Expo.”
