Reporting capabilities improved to catch would-be hoons

Following extensive work with the Logan City Council Hooning Taskforce to enhance existing hooning offence reporting pathways, the Queensland Police Service (QPS) has introduced a state-of-the-art computer system to enhance online reporting capabilities and the online reporting experience.

Assistant Commissioner Marcus said the changes would make it easier and more efficient for Queenslanders to report hooning-related offences through Policelink’s online reporting platform.

“Our online form has been enhanced so that is simple to use and allows members of the community to upload and provide any photos or videos of the offence captured,” Assistant Commissioner Marcus said.

“This will increase our capacity to prosecute offenders for these kinds of offences while also making the reporting process more streamlined for those wanting police investigations in their neighbourhoods.

“We know that our community does not accept nor tolerate dangerous driving and hooning behaviour and we will continue to use this new progression in the online reporting space to our advantage as we continue to police this kind of anti-social and life-endangering behaviour.”

The body of work aligns closely with newly introduced legislation on hooning and allows Policelink to continue to provide the community with services to report crime and request police attendance.

With more than 12,000 hooning reports already received this year to Policelink, the QPS continues to target the issue of hooning and dangerous driving behaviour throughout the state to keep our community safe.
