Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP has praised officers across Penrith, St Marys, Fairfield and Green Valley Local Area Commands for their tireless efforts in combating local crime.

Tanya Davies said that the most recent quarterly data from the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) is proof of the exceptional work of local police in preventing crime.

In the 24 months to December 2016, 16 out of the 17 major crime categories either fell or remained stable, including murder, domestic violence and robbery.

Tanya Davies said local statistics from the Mulgoa region followed the state-wide trends, with 7 offences remaining stable or trending down.

“I am really pleased to see downward trends in Mulgoa in the following major crime categories”:

  • Sexual assault is down 13.1% (Fairfield)
  • Break and enter dwelling is down 27.7% (Fairfield)
  • Break and enter dwelling is down 10.3% (Liverpool)
  • Break and enter dwelling is down 24.7% (Penrith)
  • Motor vehicle theft is down 5.5% (Fairfield)
  • Motor vehicle theft is down 30.1% (Liverpool)
  • Steal from motor vehicle is down 17.2% (Penrith)

 “This latest data from BOCSAR is a testament to our local police and their dedication to the safety and protection of our community,” Tanya Davies said.

“I would like to thank all the communities in the Mulgoa electorate for being vigilant and establishing proactive partnerships with our police, ensuring public safety concerns are properly addressed,” Tanya Davies said.

“The NSW Liberals and Nationals Government is determined to provide police across the state with the resources they need to investigate and prosecute these crimes.

“The upcoming introduction of Regional and Metropolitan Deputy Commissioners as part of the NSW Government’s reforms to the NSW Police Force will ensure targeted policing of the highest standard to reduce local crime trends.”
