The ABC brings word that the long held dream of wind-swept Gungahlin has finally come to pass. They’re getting a 24 hour police station.
- The ACT Police Minister Simon Corbell says the around the clock operation fulfils an election commitment to Gungahlin residents.
Mr Corbell says the change will mean an extra 24 police officers and two patrol cars will service the area.
“The Government has paid for these additional officers and those additional officers supplement the existing resources of ACT Policing,” he said.
It always seemed basic that people should be able to go to a police station to seek help, whatever the hour.
