MARSHALL LOOKS TO BUDGET FOR STATION FUNDING

With the state budget just around the corner Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall is continuing his push for a new 24-hour police station in Inverell.

“Is an issue that needs to be addressed quite urgently. It is a station that was built nearly 60 years ago for 14 police officers. It now has 50 officers working out of the same station.”

Officers are now operating out of police residences due to a lack of room.

The state government, so far spending spend more than $250,000 on the current station to ensure it’s safe.

“The roof is leaking , there’s no space for female officers to change, there’s not enough cells and only one interview room, when we need at least two. Not enough charge room spaces. The whole building needs to be bulldozed.”
