Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott has commended police in the Castle Hill Police Area Command (PAC) for their exceptional work in fighting local crime.
Mr Elliott said that the most recent data from the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) is a testament to the proactive and targeted work of local police in detecting, disrupting and preventing crime.
In the 24 months to June 2018, Mr Elliott said local statistics from the Baulkham Hills Electorate reflected the tireless efforts of local police and the ongoing cooperation of the community.
“Locally, it is very reassuring to see downward trends in the following major crime categories:
- Break and enter non-dwelling is down 37.3% (The Hills Shire Council); and,
- Malicious damage to property is down 16.8% (The Hills Shire Council).
“I would like to thank the Baulkham Hills community for remaining vigilant and reporting crime to our local police officers,” Mr Elliott said.
“Our local police do a remarkable job attending to incidents, targeting criminals, and supporting victims of crime. It is in this regard I congratulate Superintendent Rob Critchlow, the Commander of the Castle Hill PAC. These results would not be possible if it were not for his exceptional leadership and unswerving determination.
“Community safety is a top priority for the NSW Government and we will continue to support our local police as they put their life on the line to protect others.”
