PANSW calls for 2,500 extra officers to deal with threats to public

President of the Police Association NSW, Scott Weber, tells Mark Levy that an additional 2,500 officers are needed to prevent terrorist incidents and organised crime.

The PANSW are calling for the government to increase the amount of officers on the streets to keep the public safe.

“The Police Association is asking the NSW government to invest in 2,500 extra officers over the next five years.

"That’s a modest increase and government can afford it.

“We want more people in blue. We want more police out there on the streets.”

Mr Weber says the world has changed and we have to be “eternally vigilant”.

“Look, the world has changed and not for the better but NSW police is changing with it.”
