More Police On Our Streets To End The Escalating Violence
This petition made change with 979 supporters!
In the past few months we’ve seen the rise of gangs, such as the infamous ‘Apex’ group, unleashing violence in our city.
These gangs are assaulting and robbing innocent people in their own homes and on Victorian streets.
The problem is not Victorian Police, in fact it’s their lack of numbers and resources at their disposal.
State MP David Southwick has been campaigning the current Victorian Government to fund more resources and frontline police to tackle the increase in crime.
Crime in Victoria has increased 8.3% in the last year, with certain areas exposed to much higher rates including the city of Glen Eira which has seen a shocking rise of 21.36%.
We are demanding the government fund much needed resources to allow the police to do their job and make our streets safe again.
On Sunday the 17th of April, Premier Daniel Andrews "promised to deliver" an additional 300 frontline police to combat "the rise in gang crime and shooting offences".
While this is a good start in the right direction, it certainly is only a fraction of what is needed and what we are demanding.
Recently in Melbourne, a father-of-three was attacked with a baseball bat & a hockey stick by suspected Apex Gang members on a busy suburban street. When the victim notified police of the location of his laptop that had been stolen, and the thieves who stole it, using a GPS-tracking app, the police said they do not have the resources to follow up.
This is simply not good enough. We, the public, have a right to feel safe in our homes and community and demand change.
David Southwick MP has agreed receive and act on our behalf.
