Police from the Burwood and Flemington local area commands will take part in the regional program, starting on Friday.

Motorists can contact their local police station for further details or log on to www.police. nsw.gov.au 3 POLICE are still appealing for witnesses following an armed robbery at a hotel at Dulwich Hill and a service station at Summer Hill last Thursday night. About 10.10pm, two men armed with a shotgun, entered the Gladstone Hotel on the corner of Marrickville and New Canterbury roads. One of the offenders climbed over the bar and demanded cash from the till. As the second offender was standing nearby, he was grabbed from behind by a patron and in the ensuing struggle, the offender discharged a shot into the wall of the bar. The men left the scene with an amount of cash, in a silver-coloured Holden Barina, which was later found burnt out. The car is being examined by officers from the Forensic Services Group. A canvass of the local area was conducted and police are keen to speak with anyone who may have information related to the incident. Police believe the hotel robbery may be linked to an earlier shooting at Cowper St, Campsie, and the armed robbery of a service station at Summer Hill, which also occurred overnight. Anyone with information is asked to contact Marrickville Police Station on 9568 9299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. You can remain anonymous. 4 Car-jackers stole a convertible car in Silverwater on Sunday after threaten- ing the victim with a metal pole.
