A chat by police to a group of cub scouts in Bacchus Marsh about crime prevention has grown into an event where business and community members are also invited to join in.

The event is planned for Thursday 27 October from 7pm at the James Young Room in the new Community Learning Centre in Bacchus Marsh.

Entry is by gold coin donation, with supper provided and door prizes as well.

Youth liaison officer, Senior Constable Jim Ross said he was invited to talk to the cubs about crime prevention as part of one youngster's bid for a crime prevention achievement badge, but discussions with the cub scout leader and members has resulted in an evening open to the community.

Senior Constable Ross said "the kudos for the event must go to young Tristan (a local Cub) who suggested it". Tristan will also be master of ceremonies for the evening whilst the Cub Scouts will be delivering throughout the community.
