Police scoff at school report

FRASER Coast police have scoffed at reports of dangerous schools in the region.

In a report in the Courier Mail today, it was stated that officer safety was an issue at two schools on the Fraser Coast, namely Hervey Bay and Urangan State High Schools.

A Hervey Bay police spokeswoman said the report came as a shock.

"There's no problem as far as I'm aware," she said.

As an example, she mentioned that Urangan High has a school based police officer who is there every day, and to her knowledge the officer is not living in fear of pupil attacks.
