Police cells overflowing after riot damage

It’s now more than a year since Labor’s bungling allowed jailed prisoners to riot over the introduction of smoking bans.

Yet the damage still hasn’t been repaired, the cost of repairs is going through the roof, it’s causing long delays in the justice system and police are being forced to spend hours supervising prisoners in police cells.

As my colleague, Edward O’Donohue says, instead of being on the beat catching crooks, police are tied up babysitting crooks.

We need our state government to ensure a strong and effective justice system, not let criminals run riot and cause havoc in the justice system.
