Police in the Inner South

More needs to be done to stop crime in the Inner South.

The ACT has the lowest number of police per capita and the lowest police funding per capita in Australia.

Since 2010, ACT Labor has gradually starved our police of resources, resulting in 75 fewer frontline officers today.

Canberra’s Inner South has grown, but our police numbers have not.

Our police are doing the best they can, but with such limited resources they cannot be everywhere they are needed.

Sign the petition to provide more support to the police in the Inner South.

Car-Free Days

On 16 September, the Canberra Times reported that the ACT Labor Government will consider introducing car-free days to Canberra.

“Having a day to use this road space for walking and cycling, supported by public transport, gives a sense of the kind of city that emerges when cars are de-prioritised.”

What do you think about car-free days for Canberra?

School Chaplains

Schools should be allowed to choose who supports their students.

Chaplains help thousands of students and teachers each year by providing educational, emotional and spiritual support. The ACT Government is banning chaplains from schools despite the program being fully funded by the Federal Government.

Canberra schools have the worst rate of violence against students, teachers and principals in the nation. Academic results continue to decline with many schools overcrowded and in desperate need of maintenance. Read more about it here.

At this time of crisis, we should be putting more resources into schools, not taking them away.

Sign the petition to support school choice and chaplains.
