Tuggerah Lakes Police District will soon be bolstered by a squad of specialist police.
The district takes in police stations at Wyong, Toukley and The Entrance, and it will have a dedicated Elder Abuse Prevention Officer and a Child Protection Officer.
Also, 60 extra specialist high-visibility police officers over the next four years, will be on the beat on the Central Coast, covering both the Brisbane Waters and Tuggerah Lakes police districts.
This specialist squad will be on the ground patrolling the local community, and will target different areas in the northern region, as required, for such things as crowd management, counter intelligence work or just simply being “on the beat”.
Liberal candidate for The Entrance, Brian Perrem, said this was part of the 1,500 extra police officers to be deployed over four years, the biggest increase in more than 30 years.
These new high visibility officers will focus on high-pedestrian areas, including transport hubs, sporting events and local major events to keep the Central Coast safe.
