Labour Statement On Retail Crime Ministerial Advisory Group

Published: Thu 11 Jul 2024 03:35 PM
“National’s campaign was about tackling crime and the best they can do is a two-year long Ministerial Advisory Group,” Labour justice spokesperson Duncan Webb said.
“A Ministerial Advisory Group is not an urgent solution to an urgent problem. That $2.6 million could be spent on crime prevention, supporting victims, rehabilitation and stopping reoffending right now.
“Just saying you’ll be tough on crime doesn't stop crime. We need evidence-based solutions that work, so it’s time to stop playing politics and start working together to build a safer community.”
