Freo's View


Posted in city of fremantle, crime, law&order by freoview on October 26, 2016

The claim in the West Australian today by Rhett Pace, the owner of the Zapfhall on the Cappuccino Strip, that he saw City security officers for the first time after he posted a video of two women fighting, is ridiculous.

I am in the inner city daily and Fremantle security officers are a high visible presence on the streets of the CBD, even more so since they started wearing high-vis vests recently and their numbers were increased.

On the occasions I needed their support they were there within minutes, so they are doing an excellent job.

It is a shame the world has become a more violent place and that Fremantle is not exempt from it, but the mix of alcohol and drugs unfortunately put more violent loonies on our streets, and Freo City security officers and police do the best they can, but they can’t be everywhere all the time.

    I concur wholeheartedly Roel, Whilst I cannot speak for other areas in Fremantle, the Rangers patrol the Arthur Head Precinct daily and perform their difficult duties in a sensitive and caring manner. A delightful group of men and women and a very welcome presence in our area. Thank you to them all.

    It’s probably the first time he’s seen them because that place is hardly ever open or with anyone. Amazing how a place with such character and location can have zero vibe.
