Member for the Drummoyne Electorate, Mr John Sidoti MP has praised the exceptional work of police in the Burwood Police Area Command in deterring and combatting local crime.

Mr Sidoti said the latest quarterly data from the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) reflects the tireless efforts of local police and the cooperation of the community.

The latest quarterly report released by Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOSCAR) shows that in the 24 months to December 2017, all but one major crime category remained stable or fell across the state.

“Thanks to the proactive approach of local police, crime rates in the Drummoyne Electorate mirrored the state-wide trends,” Mr Sidoti said.

“Community safety is of paramount importance, so it’s reassuring to see that crime categories across the Drummoyne electorate have remained stable or have trended downwards in the two years to December 2017.”

Mr Sidoti said frontline police officers work day-in, day-out fighting and preventing crime, but they can’t do it alone.

“I would like to thank the Drummoyne community for working with our local police and reporting crimes,” Mr Sidoti said.

Minister for Police Troy Grant said the NSW Government is committed to providing local police with the resources they need to protect the community.

“Community safety is a top priority for this Government and these results show our tough and proactive stance on crime is having a positive effect,” said Mr Grant.
