View descriptionShare

Police Minister Mark Mitchell joins me for a confronting discussion on gang violence and retail theft, bringing his unique perspective on the challenges law enforcement faces amidst a surge in crime.

Amidst a backdrop of increasing gang-related activities, Mitchell outlines the government's bold steps to safeguard our communities - detailing the strategic shift towards enhancing public safety, exploring the directive to the police commissioner, and delving into the potential empowerment of security guards to help stem the tide of retail crime. We also look at how the rise in family harm and mental health emergencies are straining police resources to near breaking point.

Our discussion unwraps the complexities of regional policing, shining a light on the upcoming legislation aimed at disrupting gang presence and activities. We dissect the anticipated impact of banning gang patches and the strategic use of dispersal orders, drawing experiences from similar measures enacted in Western Australia.

Join us for this compelling exploration into the reshaping of crime prevention and public safety within our communities.
