June 15, 2017

The Member for Sandringham Murray Thompson today expressed concern regarding the increase of crime within the City of Bayside.

Crime in Bayside is up 20.5% under Daniel Andrews.

Crime Statistics comparisons between 2016 and 2017, reveal Bayside’s overall Crime Statistics have increased by 7.3%.

Deception offences are up by a staggering 42.1% and Assault and related offences are up by 12.8%.

Murray Thompson calls upon the Victorian Labor Government to immediately increase police resources to reduce the substantial increase in property and deception offences in Bayside.

Victoria’s population is rapidly increasing but police numbers are static. More police resources need to be dedicated towards combatting crime to keep our community safe.

Bayside householders and business proprietors need to maintain a high level of vigilance to ensure that they do not become victims of the escalating crime spree.
