Wilful exposure, Cairns City


The arrest of a man in the Cairns CBD today has highlighted the value of collaboration in addressing local crime issues, with local police and Cairns Regional Council CCTV operators working in partnership to ensure a proactive approach to public safety in Cairns.

Cairns police today charged a 26-year-old Woree man with one count of wilful exposure after camera operators observed the man expose himself and follow a woman along The Esplanade at about 4:45AM.

Officers arrested the man near the intersection of The Esplanade and Minnie Street a short time later.

He is scheduled to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on August 27.
