On behalf of Labor's Shadow Minister for Police and Emergency Management, David Llewellyn AM MP, I have launched a petition calling on the Tasmanian Government to reconsider its decision not to give New Norfolk a permanent police presence. New Norfolk's police station is staffed during the day, but in the evening police have to travel from Bridgewater to attend incidents in New Norfolk.
Hard copies of the petition are available to sign at Banjos New Norfolk and the New Norfolk Newsagency. David Llewellyn will be tabling the petition in Parliament later this year.
