Local MP says We Need More Police

Member for South West Coast Roma Britnell claims new police figures released by the Victorian Police Association shows residents in Warrnambool are not getting their fair share of new police resources under Daniel Andrews.

The Victorian Police Association stated that of the 900 new Police allocated over the past 3 years, only 77 officers have gone to regional Victoria.

This paltry allocation of new officers comes as the latest independent crime statistics agency data confirms total offences in the Warrnambool City Council area have risen over 34.68% under Daniel Andrews.

When it comes to the safety of regional Victorians, Daniel Andrews has left local Police and local
communities to fend for themselves.

Member for South West Coast Roma Britnell says “Local police in Warrnambool work hard to keep their communities safe but aren’t getting the support they deserve from the Andrews Labor Government.”

“Daniel Andrews needs look beyond Melbourne, wake up to the need of regional communities and ensure they get their fair share of police resources.”
