Doomadgee park vandalism ‘senseless’

Police are appealing for information regarding the destruction and vandalism of a community park in Doomadgee in north-west Queensland.

Police say there had been a significant upgrade at the facility but damage was done to tables and benches earlier this month.

Mount Isa District Inspector Trevor Kidd says the town’s new emergency safety board, which displays important disaster information, was also vandalised.

“From the photographs that I’ve seen it was a very wanton act of vandalism, it served no real purpose at all,” he said.

“It’s had an impact on the community, that board contained important information should something happen.

“We’re heading up into what we hope is going to be a good wet season and that sort of information is what people need, so to do this was just a senseless act and people need to be made accountable for it, who committed that crime.”
