Not enough police to ‘respond to crime’: Alice Springs Mayor

Alice Springs Mayor Matt Paterson says there aren’t sufficient police to “reply to crime” in Alice Springs and extra assist is required.“I dwell in Alice Springs, I’m telling you proper now we don’t have sufficient police, we ship Operation Drina in December the place we had 40 further police make a constructive influence,” Mr Paterson instructed Sky Information Australia.“We want that once more.“It’s taking police seven and a half, eight hours to reply to a spot the place it’s been damaged into, or crime has been dedicated.”
