JP Langbroek ramps up campaign for safety in suburbs

Member for Surfers Paradise, John-Paul Langbroek has urged locals to get on board a campaign to increase police presence in suburbs behind the glitter strip, in an effort stamp out anti-social behaviour in the area.

Mr Langbroek said after the death in Allawah Street last week, and the discovery of a range of drugs and weapons in Coogeen Street this week, it is clear that an increased police presence in Bundall, Benowa, Sorrento and Ashmore is imperative to ensure that the electorate is a safe place to live, work and raise a family.

 

“It is worrying that parks, suburban streets, and the area around local shopping centres turn into a no-go zone after dark, and residents agree that police presence in these areas would deter trouble-makers,” he said

 

“The community is right to be concerned about safety in these areas, and it is time for the Police Minister to step up to the plate and deliver more police in the area to put a stop to anti-social behaviour.

 

“That’s why I have launched a petition to take the fight to Parliament House, and encourage locals to support this campaign to make our streets safer.”
