Tasmania Police want to hear from you as part of the 2023 Tasmania Police Community Survey
The survey is open now to all community members in Tasmania aged 16 years or older. It is an opportunity to share your views on community policing topics. The data gathered will have a direct impact on how police resources are targeted.
The survey includes questions about local safety/crime concerns, how you think police are performing their roles/your past experiences with police and how you prefer to engage with police (if you ever need to)!
The survey results will be made public in 2024.
Broad community input will help make a difference to the future of policing. Learn more & fill in the survey at www.police.tas.gov.au/survey

School Remembrance Day Commemorative Service
School Remembrance Day Commemorative Service, Friday 10 November 2023
Each year Australia commemorates the end of World War 1 on 11 November. As a mark of respect Australians are encouraged to pause at 11.00am to observe one minute’s silence and remember those who have died or suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars and armed conflicts.
This year, as Remembrance Day falls on a Saturday, Albuera Street Primary’s Commemorative Service will be held on Friday 10 November, at Angelsea Barracks. Please ensure your child has their school hat and appropriate school uniform for the weather, as the excursion will be going ahead unless there is heavy rain falling at the time.
Parents and family members who would like to attend the service are invited to meet the group at the main entrance to the Barracks (between the two cannons on Davey Street) promptly at 10.40am. You may join your child to say hello and accompany their class to the ceremony area. Students are to stay with their class at all times. Once at the service family members are asked to stand at the back of the whole-school group (similar to assemblies; please do not sit with your child and their class group); seating will not be available. At the conclusion of the service you are welcome to join your child/ren to walk out of the Barracks. Please ensure your child stays with their class.
It is anticipated that the service will end at about 11.15am. Please do not take photographs before, during or after the service.
LIFT THE LID ON HEALTHY MINDS
Next Thursday, November 9th, we are having a Crazy Hat Day to raise money for Mental Health research.
