New Richmond LAC crime manager wants you to feel safe
CRIMINALS look out - Detective Inspector Cameron Lindsay starts as Richmond Local Area Command crime manager on Monday and you're on his radar.
Det Insp Lindsay, who has 25 years policing experience may be a familiar face to some locals - he served in the Richmond LAC from 2001-2003.
"The Northern Rivers is an absolutely beautiful area and I am looking forward to bringing my family up there and enjoying the area and the facilities it has to offer," he said.
He has been Coffs Clarence crime manager and replaces Greg Moore, who was promoted to Superintendent of the Darling River LAC in May.
After starting his career in 1988 at The Rocks in Sydney, Det Insp Lindsay rose through the criminal investigation ranks, working on some of the state's biggest crimes.
"I have worked in major crime squads in Sydney and the latter part of my career has been in regional areas."
Keeping instances of property crime and violence down will be a big focus.
"I will be looking to continue the great crime reduction the area has achieved over the last few years."
"People want to feel safe, that their property is safe and I believe it is totally unacceptable for people to assault other people, to act in an anti-social way, to steal things from other people or to break into their homes."
Richmond LAC Superintendent Greg Martin said Det Insp Lindsay was a welcome addition.
Having worked together previously, Supt Martin said Det Insp Lindsay will bring a wealth of experience.
"I am expecting him to hit the ground running," he said.
