Members of the Police Union have met with Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson as they continue to call for more boots on the ground.
A surging ice epidemic has prompted a call for 25 more officers in Tamworth alone.
“Domestic violence, you see it in youth crime, mental health incidents, road trauma, property theft, house break ins, business break ins – all has links back to this incideous drug, ice,” Tony King, President of the Police Association of New South Wales.
The union is asking for 25-hundred extra officers across the state, Mr Anderson expecting he won’t be the only MP to take up the issue with the Police Minister.
“Well I like a fight, I don’t win every one of them but my golly I’m in there fighting for what we believe is our fair share, and I want to try and make sure we’re at the front of the queue,” Kevin Anderson, Member for Tamworth.
