March 22, 2016

The Member for Sandringham 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 and Kingston.

These offences include property damage, burglary/ break and enter,theft and deception.

Between the 2014 and 2015 years Bayside’s property and deception offences have increased by 14%, and Kingston’s have increased by 19%.

Victoria’s population is rapidly increasing but police numbers are static.

Bayside and Kingston householders and business proprietors need to maintain a high level of vigilance to ensure that they don’t become victims of the escalating crime spree.
