Crime spike for forum
CRIME issues in Belmont, which include domestic violence, drug abuse and mental health, will be discussed at a community forum next month.
The forum has been organised by Belmont MLA Glenys Godfrey who has invited Police Minister Liza Harvey and Mental Health Minister Andrea Mitchell to attend.
Responding to the publication of high crime figures for the city last week, Ms Godfrey said crime was a complex issue.
She said policing was one of many ways to address crime, but social issues were also important.
The forum will be held at the Belmont RSL in Ascot, on September 1 from 6-7.30pm.
