Fraser backs call for extra police

THE Coffs Harbour area needs more permanent police, according to local MP Andrew Fraser.

“The displays of anti-social behaviour on Australia Day, the general lack of law and order, and a drug bust at a local hotel over the weekend are all incidents that highlight the need for extra police resources,” Mr Fraser said.

“Additionally, a greater police presence on the Pacific Highway would result in a safer roadway.

“Rather than sending in hordes of police for short periods of time, if we had more local police, accident rates and poor driving would diminish.”

Mr Fraser said he strongly supported calls by the Coffs Harbour branch of the NSW Police Association for an additional 15 general duties police officers for Coffs Harbour.

“I believe the most economical way to handle this is to have a permanent increase in our police presence,” he said.
