Legistrative Council E-Petitions

E-petition Number
419
Title
Reducing crime in Tarneit, Hoppers Crossing and Truganina
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that incidents of aggravated theft and violence, burglary, hooning and drugs have increased in the Tarneit, Hoppers Crossing and Truganina areas.

Victoria Police do a fantastic job but due to soft laws, most of these criminals are back on our streets in no time, some recommitting whilst on bail. The community is quite concerned, with many leaving the area for good as families no longer feel safe.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to legislate for tougher bail laws in Victoria and a greater police presence in Tarneit, Hoppers Crossing and Truganina, provide public briefings on government run programs that assist with reducing the crime rate and conduct audits on how these programs can rehabilitate criminals.
