Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

SURELY, the Min­is­ter for Po­lice and the lo­cal Mem­ber for Bel­mont, Glenys God­frey MLA, can­not stand by their ear­lier com­ments about the Gov­ern­ment’s in­vest­ment in lo­cal polic­ing, given the shock­ing crime statis­tics re­leased last week.

Bel­mont has seen crime rise more than 20 per cent, with the Po­lice Com­mis­sioner ad­mit­ting that there are just not enough of­fi­cers on our streets – no sur­prise for res­i­dents there.

We need more po­lice now and we need them on our lo­cal streets, not in Can­ning­ton or Mid­land. SUE PETHICK, Red­cliffe.
