Murray Watch is watching, Murraywatch

MURRAY WATCH is a 24 hour 7 day a week contact point where concerned citizens
can report offences/incidents/areas of concern which they have witnessed occurring
along the river, lakes and environs.

MURRAY WATCH is stopping people from doing wrong in and around the river system.
As users of the river become aware they are being watched, Murray Watch acts as
a deterrent rather than as a policing action.

A telephone call is made to MURRAY WATCHtelephone number 8531 0710, details are
taken down and are relayed immediately to the appropriate government departments.
The person making the call may be asked to make a follow up statement so legal
action can be taken if necessary.

 require immediate action are:

  • Police
    Vandalism, theft, disorderly behaviour, marijuana crops
  • Department of Transport (Marine Safety)
