Ac­tion on meth plan ex­plained

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

THE State Govern­ment’s meth ac­tion plan and lat­est WA Po­lice struc­ture over­haul were top­ics dis­cussed at a com­mu­nity safety fo­rum in Wan­neroo.

More than 70 peo­ple at­tended the Oc­to­ber 22 meet­ing hosted by Wan­neroo MLA Sabine Win­ton at the Wan­neroo Sports and So­cial Club.

Po­lice Min­is­ter Michelle Roberts was the key pan­elist who ad­dressed the fo­rum about the State Govern­ment’s meth ac­tion plan and ex­plained how the po­lice oper­a­tional struc­ture over­haul ben­e­fited the Wan­neroo sub-dis­trict.

The changes, which came into ef­fect in July, have re­sulted in Wan­neroo pa­trol and re­sponse teams op­er­at­ing 24 hours, im­prov­ing re­sponse times.

The panel also in­cluded se­nior po­lice of­fi­cers from the Joon­dalup Dis­trict of­fice and Wan­neroo po­lice sta­tion.

The min­is­ter and of­fi­cers an­swered com­mu­nity ques­tions on do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, Neigh­bour­hood Watch, al­co­hol abuse, men­tal health and the re­struc­ture of the PCYC (Po­lice and Cit­i­zens Youth Club) for youth.

“It was re­ally valu­able for res­i­dents to talk and meet with the min­is­ter,” Ms Win­ton said.
