1125 more Police staff

has announced a safer communities package:

  • 1,125 more staff, a 10% increase to over 13,000
  • 880 more sworn officers
  • $503 million safer communities package
  • A new 24/7 phone number for non-urgent Police calls
  • New target for 98% of home burglaries to be attended within 48 hours
  • 95% of NZers to be within 25 kms of a Police presence
  • $115 million more for Corrections and Courts

I especially like the target for burglary attendance.
