CRIME FIGURES DOWN IN BROKEN HILL

Wednesday, 5 December 2018

Member for Barwon, Kevin Humphries has commended local police for their exceptional work in driving down local crime.

Kevin Humphries said that the most recent quarterly data from the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) is a testament to the proactive work of local police in detecting and preventing crime.

“Local statistics from the Far West showed two major crime categories remaining stable or trending down,” Kevin Humphries said

“Locally, it is very reassuring to see downward trends in the following major crime categories in the 24 months to September 2018:

• Motor vehicle theft down 60.9% in Broken Hill
• Malicious damage to property down 14.2% in Broken Hill
“This latest data from BOCSAR shows that the Liberals & Nationals Government’s tough stance on crime is keeping our community safe.

“Our incredible police officers have worked tirelessly alongside the community to keep crime rates low,” Kevin Humphries said.

“The Liberals & Nationals Government has also taken a major step to fortify the force into the future with the recent investment of more than $583 million over four years to deliver 1500 extra police.

“This will ensure we’re not only able to maintain the current level of service and protection the community expects, but can also meet emerging crime-trends head-on.

“Our local police do a remarkable job attending to incidents, targeting criminals and supporting victims of crime, but they can’t do it alone.

“I would like to thank the Broken Hill community for doing their bit by reporting crime, working closely with our local police officers, and remaining vigilant.
