Constituency question - Tatura police station
My question is for the Minister for Police.
As I travel throughout my electorate I continuously meet with constituents who are concerned with the lack of police resources in their towns.
Just last week I attended the Tatura police station, where I was faced with a locked office and a sign which advised residents to phone ahead before presenting at the station. In an emergency situation, the sign advised residents to call 000 or alternatively to contact the Shepparton police station. How many police officers are allocated to the Tatura police station, and what percentage of their time is spent in the Tatura area, providing direct service to that local community?
