Police Minister pays tribute to departing Commissioner
The Minister of Police, George Hawkins has paid tribute to Police Commissioner Rob Robinson, who has announced that he
would be stepping down from his role at the end of the year.
"Mr Robinson is a good commissioner who has dealt with issues head-on," said Mr Hawkins. "Under him, Police have helped
achieve the lowest crime rate in 25 years, the highest clearance rate in 18 years and kept our roads safer than they
have been in decades.
"Today's announcement is a sad day for Police but I thank Mr Robinson for his considerable contribution and wish him
good luck in the future."
