犯罪数据会说话,维州警力左支右绌

维州上週公佈的最新犯罪数据统计显示,在过去短短 12个月内,犯罪率激增 8.1 %。

 

其中最让人担忧的犯罪是 人身攻击增长 4.2%、入室盗窃增长 9.1%、偷盗增长 11%、武器相关犯罪增长 17.1%,毒品贩运增长 17.7%。

 

而近期在联邦广场附近发生的帮派暴动及 Brunswick East 发生黑手党涉及的谋杀案犹如一再为维州一年来日趋恶化的治安问题发出一次又一次的警讯。

 

但州政府彷佛掩耳盗铃,不知民间疾苦似的,除了拒绝聘用更多的警察、关闭警察局外,更让现有警力调动左支右绌,拆了东牆补西牆,也造成维州现今警力严重不足,更不堪维安的窘境。

 

维州需要更多的警力,维州需要更完善有力的执法与量刑,因为只有多管齐下,聘用更多警力、完善法制、加重量刑等改革后,才能吓阻犯罪的发生及有效确保社区和人民的安全。

Crime figures show Victoria needs more police

 

The latest crime statistics for Victoria were released last week, showing there has been an 8.1% increase in crime over the last 12 months.

 

This includes a 4.2% increase in assaults, a 9.1% increase in burglary, an 11% increase in theft, a 17.1% increase in weapons offences and a 17.7% increase in drug trafficking.

 

The recent riots at Federation Square and the apparent mafia murder in Brunswick East are further signs of how bad crime has become in Victoria.

 

Despite this, the State government is refusing to appoint more police, resulting in police stations closing and police stretched to the limit.

 

Victoria needs more police, and we need stronger sentences to deter crime and protect the community.
