Tanya Davies MP. Member for Mulgoa.


Wednesday April 22, 2015

Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa, said her electorate of Mulgoa was faring well in the fight against crime, with the latest Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) data painting a positive picture for the region.


“My electorate of Mulgoa is following state-wide trends, with most major crimes and offences remaining stable or falling” said Tanya Davies.


BOCSAR reports some of the most serious offences have remained stable, while some are falling.


ALL 17 major crime categories across the Mulgoa electorate have either remained stable or are trending down in the two years to December 2014.

  • Break and enter dwelling is down 28.6% (Fairfield City LGA)
  • Steal from retail store is down 33.5% (Fairfield City LGA)
  • Malicious Damage to Property is down 9.2% (Fairfield City LGA)
  • Malicious Damage to Property is down 15.4% (Penrith City LGA)
  • Steal from a person is down 26.3% (Penrith City LGA)


NONE of the 17 categories has seen an upward trend.


“This is great news for our community” said Tanya Davies.


“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has worked hard to deliver extra police officers and resources as well as strengthen police powers to combat crime and this has been reflected in the crime data.


“Community members can assist police in the fight against crime by reporting incidents when they occur and remaining vigilant.


“I thank our local police officers for their hard work – these overwhelmingly positive statistics are testament to their efforts and success.”
