There are fewer ‘first-response’ police officers servicing the Bentleigh electorate than four years ago. This includes the suburbs of Bentleigh, East Bentleigh, McKinnon, Ormond, Hampton East, Moorabbin and Brighton East.
The drop in visible policing has undermined community safety. Home invasions are up, assaults are up and our community is now awash with graffiti.
The petitioners therefore request that Daniel Andrews’ Minister for Police immediately reverse her police cuts in Bentleigh.
