Permanent police officer for Cradle Mountain

Why Tasmania

With more Tasmanians holidaying at home and an increase in the number of incidents requiring a police response, Cradle Mountain will now have a member of the force permanently stationed at the National Park as announced by Tasmania Police earlier today via their Facebook page.

This is the first time an officer will be stationed permanently in the area after a successful trial earlier in the year.

“Constable Elmar Van Breda will operate from the Cradle Mountain gateway precinct to undertake general duties, including but not limited to public safety, crime, traffic policing and emergency management.”

“Cradle Mountain is one of the state’s tourist icons and with more Tasmanians now holidaying at home, so too has the number of incidents that require a police response.”
