POLICE will use utility task vehicles for patrols across Logan.

The lightweight vehicle can travel on rough, uneven terrain usually only accessible by foot or bicycle.

A Queensland Police Service spokesperson said Logan Central police station had two UTVs.

More officers were being trained in how to drive them, with the vehicles also to be used by police liaison officers.

The spokesperson said police liaison officers regularly visited different parts of Logan to help bridge the gap between police and the community.

"They are a great valued asset to the QPS and are always friends, so feel free to say hi next time you see them out," the spokesperson said.

Always dial Triple Zero (000) in an emergency.

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