Families in Currumbin can feel safer and better protected with 8 new officers being sent to the region as part of the Government’s strong plan for a brighter future for communities across Queensland.

Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP said the new First Year Constables would be an invaluable resource for the Currumbin community and would revitalise frontline services as promised at the state election.

“Police at the Coolangatta and Palm Beach Stations along with the Elanora Police Beat are to be commended for their sterling efforts in keeping our neighbourhoods safe,” Ms Stuckey.

“These new officers are a welcome addition and are part of the Newman Government’s commitment to deliver 1,100 officers statewide over 4 years, with 750 officers already on our streets.

“This Government promised to make Queensland the safest place to live and raise a family in Australia, and having more police on the beat also delivers on this commitment.

“These new officers have completed 25 weeks of rigorous training in order to prepare them to protect and serve our community when required.

“On behalf of the residents of Currumbin I wish to extend a warm welcome to the new officers as they start their careers in our community.”
