Criminals running rampant under Daniel Andrews

Reports today of three men on the run after a brazen crime spree through Melbourne’s south-east is further evidence that Daniel Andrews’ law and order policies are failing Victoria. 

Every day Victorians are waking to yet another story about criminals running rampant in our streets following the weakening of our justice system by Daniel Andrews.

Victorians are experiencing record crime and are living in fear.

For the year to March 2016, total crime has risen in Kingston by 19.8% in just one year under Daniel Andrews with theft up 17.5% and burglary/ break and enter up 27.1%.

Despite this, under Daniel Andrews police stations are closing and frontline police numbers have been cut.

Victorians have a right to feel safe in their homes and on our streets.
