Crime problems at the front of mind for Division 3 residents

PATRICIA Petersen is on track in wanting security guards to patrol our streets and parks.

My elderly mother lives in Riverview and is constantly being woken up by trespassers and intruders.

Nearly every night she is forced to call the police.

My father is in the nursing home and there is an ongoing problem of thieves sneaking into residents' rooms.

Our elderly are frail, vulnerable and need protection.

They don't need another councillor who will stick their heads in the sand and pretend that problems don't exist.

My parents want solutions and Dr Petersen is providing them.
