WALLAN police are on alert after antisocial behaviour has been observed around the adventure playground at Hadfield Park over the school holidays.

Senior Sergeant Conlin said police were aware of some youths causing trouble in the park at night time and during the day.

“There have been a number of fires lit around the playground,” Sgt Conlin said.

“We’ve had some damage to the toilet block area as well and attempted damage to the playground.

“A council worker yesterday has spotted someone with matches and we are now reviewing CCTV footage in the area in the hope of identifying the offenders.”

Mitchell Police Service Area posted on their Eye Watch Facebook page about the antisocial behaviour where parents added their concerns online.

One parent said she saw high school students tell her three-year-old to lick their shoes if he wanted to go down the slide while another mother said a high school student poured a McDonalds cup filled with coke down the slide knowing her child was at the bottom.

“The Wallan community are encouraged to report any antisocial behaviour to Wallan Police station,” Sgt Conlin said.
