STRADDIE police will use a utility task vehicle for patrolling beaches and camp grounds at the island throughout the school holidays.

Point Lookout Police Beat's Senior Constable Ivan Parsons said the vehicle was delivered via police barge last week.

"It's great to have a new way of getting amongst it at Point Lookout," he said.

"I'm looking forward to connecting with the tourists and locals down on the beaches and camp grounds during the holidays."

Senior Constable Ivans welcomed Straddie locals and holidaymakers to give police on patrol a wave and have a chat.

Witnesses to crime can contact Policelink on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Always dial Triple Zero (000) in an emergency.
