The Member for Sandringham Murray Thompson today called upon the Victorian Government to immediately increase police resources to reduce the substantial increase in property and deception offences in the City of Kingston.

Kingston’s overall Crime rate has increased by 22% since the Andrews government was elected.

Assault and related offences have seen an overall increase of 14.4%.

Victoria’s population is rapidly increasing and more police resources need to be dedicated towards combatting crime to keep our community safe.

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.
