Police campaign has my full support
8th March 2023
Great to meet with the Police Association of NSW again this morning to run through some of the major issues our frontline police are having.
Police resources have again become a significant issue in the Lake Macquarie area, mainly due to the number of officers on long-term sick leave. This is one of the reasons we're still struggling to get Morisset station opened 24/7.
Things have to change and police numbers will again be one of my highest priorities when the new Parliament is formed and we get a new Police Minister.
It's the toughest of jobs and I again thank all our local police for everything they do on the frontline in our community.
