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.
