Since the election of the Andrews Government, the number of offences related to criminal breaches of bail, sentencing orders and parole have almost doubled.
This means that 1 in 10 criminal charges sentenced in Victorian courts are now the result of convicted and alleged offenders committing further criminal offences or seriously breaching conditions.
The Andrews Government continues to do nothing to address this problem.
Instead, Daniel Andrews chose to make these problems worse by legalising bail breaching for juvenile offenders and trashing Victoria’s youth justice system.
Only the Liberal Nationals Coalition can be trusted to put respect back into our justice system and ensure that community safety comes first.
Quotes from Inga Peulich, Member for South Eastern Metropolitan Region:
“This report confirms that Melbourne’s south-east is in the grip of a crime tsunami and Daniel Andrews has abandoned community safety.”
“Such callous disregard for our justice system by surging numbers of criminals reinforces the culture of lawlessness and disorder under the Andrews Labor Government.”
“The culture of lawlessness in the south-east under Daniel Andrews must end.”
