“Crime in the City of Casey has increased 12.8% 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 200% rise public security offences, an 81.1% jump in judicial procedures, a 76.9% rise dangerous and negligent acts endangering people, 35.8% hike in public nuisance offences, a 29.7% increase in deception and a 23.2% jump in theft.
“Daniel Andrews has abandoned community safety and presided over a 12.8% increase in the number of offences in the City of Casey,” Ms Peulich said.
“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 that these figures are undeniable proof that crime is completely out of control in the City of Casey under Labor.
“One year ago, Daniel Andrews promised to smash the violent youth gangs running rampant across our state, but these statistics prove he hasn’t even made a dent,” Ms Peulich said.
“Casey’s crime tsunami is completely out of control and Daniel Andrews has no solutions to fix it.”
