The Minister for Police has asked for an audit of police allocations and resourcing, and is calling for community comment.
The audit will review the current Local Area Command structures police numbers and how they are allocated, with a focus on regional areas.
Comments are due by 31 July. Please send me a copy of your submission, or let me know your concerns about inner city police resources.
I intend to make a submission on behalf of the Sydney electorate, and will reinforce my longstanding calls for resources to match increasing inner city populations, alcohol-related crime and anti-social behaviour and the concentration of residents, business operators, visitors and tourists in the inner city.
Police carry out a vital role in often challenging circumstances and need adequate resources to protect community safety.
