Gungahlin police station to go 24/7

By Gungahlin Al 5 August 2008 21

The Gungahlin police station is to go over to around-the-clock operations.

GCC talked with Police Minister Simon Corbell about exactly this at the Meet the Ministers meeting on Monday 5 August. His response was that he has additional staff coming online soon, so yes, and it would be a matter of timing.

Today he is announcing that the station will receive 24 additional officers and two additional cars, allowing for an expansion to a six-team roster system.

Start date is down for January. Would be better if we could bring this forward to before the busy Christmas period though.

Tick another item off our pre-election campaign list…

UPDATED: Simon Corbell’s media release confirming this is now online.

Hardly the police’s fault that the government disguises adding more police to the beat when they’re really only topping up the numbers of those leaving. Again all this is doing is taking 24 officers from the already understaffed stations and moving them to Gungahlin. Like a magic act really, all an illusion to try and win back a few votes.

When I spoke to Simon on Monday, he indicated that there are 122 new officers coming on line.
Are you implying that the loss and attrition is greater than the number of incoming officers?

Members get promoted to different areas within ACT Policing (traffic, TIG etc), some transfer from ACT to Federal operations, get posted overseas etc etc.
