Crime spike for fo­rum

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.
