jennifer humble started this petition to Center Manager Beerwah Shopping Village and

My concern is for the safety of customers and staff around Beerwah shopping centre. This is due to the level of harassment and aggression which has increased in the past few months. These include teenagers begging for money and/or cigarettes. Physical aggression towards the elderly and vulnerable people. Spitting and verbal abuse. 

Police have been called on numerous occasions but there doesn't seem to be much that they can do as most of the offenders are underage. And Beerwah Police station is not a 24 hour station.

Staff at Woolworths are afraid of reporting shop lifters because if they do, there will either be a gang waiting to beat them up after closing, or they will vandalise the worker's car.  I am also aware of another business that won't allow their staff to go to the bins alone because of safety concerns.

Therefore I believe that hiring security and setting up CCTV cameras would;

1-Serve as a deterrent 

2- Reassure customers and staff

3-Be beneficial financially as shoplifting would decrease and customers will be more willing to shop there as opposed to shopping at a centre that has no security.
