Queensland Police advises members of the public to write down what they see as soon as possible and keep a record of the date and time of their observations as this can be important if they are required to give a statement to the police. 

If you see a crime being committed, follow these steps:

  • When safe to do so, contact police
  • Keep calm and give your name, address and telephone number
  • Report what is happening and where
  • Stay on the phone
  • If you can safely do so, keep watching and continue to report what is happening.

It is important to try to build a complete picture of the person from head to toe, paying particular note of the features, such as the gender and age bracket, body frame and size, haircut and colour, clothing, and any distinguishing features such as scars, tattoos, or glasses.
