I AM left wondering about what to do to make my community safer.
After reading headlines and accusations that crime is going through the roof and that a 24hour police station will solve everything, let us put politics aside and attend the forum on September 1 at the Belmont RSL in Ascot to hear what Police Minister Liza Harvey, and Mental Health Minister Andrea Mitchell have to say.
There is no easy solution to solve crime, domestic violence, drug abuse and mental health issues.
Unless we approach the problems united and work as one, the police (no matter how many are on the street or whether the local police station is open 24 hours a day), not all the government agencies, Neighbourhood Watch and Belmont security patrols can solve the problems on their own.
Therefore, I urge everyone from all sides of politics and genuinely concerned Belmont residents to go along and hear first-hand what is being done, and what can be done to resolve these growing problems in our community and in communities across WA. ROBERT ROSSI, Kewdale.
