“Crime in the City of Frankston has increased 9.5% in the last year under the Andrews Labor Government - this isn’t a crime wave, this is a crime tsunami,” Ms Peulich said.
The rise follows a 179% rise in public nuisance offences, a 33.2% surge in deception, 29.2% increase in burglary/break and enter, 22% surge in arsons, a 22% jump in dangerous and negligent acts endangering people, and a 20% increase in abduction.
“Under Daniel Andrews our justice system is in crisis due to weak sentencing, watered down bail laws, repeal of move on laws, cuts to frontline police and closure of police stations,” Ms Peulich said.
“These figures are undeniable proof that crime is completely out of control in Frankston under Labor. “
Crime in Frankston has increased 10.38 % since the election of the Andrews Government in November 2014.
These shocking statistics coincide with the 31.73% increase in periods of closure of the Carrum Downs Police Station. A reckless result of the Andrews Government cuts to police.
“Labor takes Frankston for granted and our community has become less safe under Daniel Andrews with home invasions, carjackings, drive-by shootings and gangs such as Apex running amok.”
“Rather than his government leaking against each other, they should instead be putting Victorians first and focused on fighting the criminals and violent youth gangs that are hurting Victorians.”
“Premier Andrews and local Labor MPs must stand up for the Frankston community and wage a war on crime rather than a war on CFA volunteers and cross-factional colleagues.”
