“Crime in the City of Casey has increased 3.3% in the last year under the Andrews Labor Government and a shocking 34.33% since they took office.” Ms Peulich said.
The rise follows a 223.91% rise in justice procedures, a 156.10% jump in aggravated burglary, a 94.26% rise in receiving or handling stolen goods, 79.75% hike in robbery, a 53.19% increase in sexual offences and a 49.79% jump in motor vehicle theft since the election of the Andrews Labor government.
“Daniel Andrews has abandoned community safety and presided over a 34% increase in crime in the City of Casey – this isn’t just a crime wave, it is a crime tsunami” 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.
“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.”
“The culture of lawlessness in the City of Casey under Daniel Andrews must end.”
