6 June 2019 Mr Walsh :
The other issue while the Minister for Police and Emergency Services is at the table that I want to raise is the crime wave that is going on in Swan Hill at the moment. There are a lot of burglaries a lot of houses being entered and when they are actually burgled perpetrators are going in trashing the house putting holes in walls and throwing everything out on the floor looking for things to steal. We have got the tragic situation of one elderly lady who had her house invaded while she was there. She now refuses to go back and live in that house. She is very concerned about her personal safety and has actually moved into a retirement home because she just does not feel safe in her home anymore. So I take the opportunity while the police minister is at the table to raise the concerns of those people who are being burgled.
