More Police Please14 Oct 2017 9:50 PMMore Police PleaseThe Northern Gold Coast continues to grow rapidly, some parts at 20%. We need an additional 50 permanent general duties officers for the North to keep up with the growth. A request my colleagues and I asked the Minister for Police many times.
Yet, Labor only allocates 5 more officers for the entire coast!
