Three Lockyer Valley Crime Stoppers volunteers have been recognised for their service over the past year.

Ben Millis, Kirsty Hanley and Shaynece Cook are among the 18 members which make up the Lockyer Valley committee of the crime fighting organisation.

At just 16-year-old Shaynece is the youngest member of the committee.

Volunteering in the group is in the family for Shaynece, her dad Darren is currently the committee chairperson.

"Dad has always done it so I just joined when I was old enough, you have to be 15," she said.

Even before she was an official member, Shaynece had been lending a hand to raise much needed dollars for the organisation.

"I like all of the events that we do, like bowls night and the races," she said.

The best thing is helping out the community and meeting new people."

Each year the committee has a goal of raising $2000 for Crime Stoppers, at their recent bowls night they raised just over $1800.

Anyone can join the Lockyer Valley Crime Stoppers by calling Darren Cook on 0400 980 422.

Anyone with information on any criminal activity can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
