Laying down the law
AS FAR as law and order goes, Labor’s latest budget has been almost non-existent.
With a handful of additional officers and talk of a new counter-terrorism facility, it pales in comparison to the significant investment made by the LNP, which included an additional 1100 officers on the beat working hard to make Queensland families safer.
That means that our hard working police aren’t getting the tools they need to keep Queenslanders safe.
Around the regions, capital purchases were also significantly underspent by $11.6 million.
That includes $700,000 on the Darling Downs and Toowoomba and $700,000 in Wide Bay.
Drug and violent crime, including domestic violence, is increasing and the criminal gangs are back in business. — Tim Mander Shadow Police Minister
