Wellington petitioning for 24-hour policing
A PETITION is currently in circulation in Wellington seeking signatures to put to the state government in a quest to secure 24-hour police presence in Wellington.
“We deserve the same resources as our coastal neighbours. It used to be that police officers lived in the town they worked. They’re a big part of the community while they’re on duty,” Wellington Business Chamber president Barry Jeffery told Dubbo Photo News.
When incidences occur at the Wellington Correctional Centre local police have to investigate, or if transfers to hospital or court occur it takes away from local resources.
