I HOPE the festive season provided you and your family with the chance to spend some valuable time together.
While the festive season may have brought joy to many, I know that, for many including myself, hearts were broken at the news of another life lost in an incident involving young offenders.
In 2022, I spoke on youth crime at almost every sitting of parliament and moved two motions for debate on behalf of the LNP calling for action on crime.
Just because we live in a small town does not mean we are immune to the juvenile crime that those north of us have faced.
Please ensure your property is secure and report any suspicious behaviour immediately to the police.
We know that our Police men and women are doing the best they can, but they need the support of good legislation and as Shadow Minister for Police, I’ll be looking to ensure that they have the powers and resources needed to do the job they signed up for in keeping our communities safe.
