Police numbers a concern

LABOR candidate for Londonderry Prue Car and shadow treasurer Michael Daley visited Werrington last week, where policing is a concern for residents and shopkeepers.

"Police have been under-strength for six months," Ms Car said.

"Police are telling me they need more support on the beat," Mr Daley added.

Police Minister Michael Gallacher and Londonderry MP Bart Bassett hit back, claiming state government has delivered 505 more police officers.
