COCKBURN POLICE STATION — CLOSURE
Petition
HON LYNN MacLAREN (South Metropolitan) [3.04 pm]: I present a petition containing 982 signatures, couched in the following terms —
To the Honourable the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled.
We the undersigned residents of Western Australia are opposed to the closure of Cockburn Police Station in Rockingham Road Spearwood. With the increase in population and the subsequent increase in crime in the district, the community requires the ongoing service of the local station for the safety of residents. The station has served the community well in the past and its removal would be a backward step for the community.
Your petitioners therefore respectfully request the Legislative Council to oppose the closure of Cockburn Police Station Rockingham Road, Spearwood Western Australia.
Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that you will give this matter earnest consideration and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
