Coomera Gets Boost in Police Numbers

New crime unit boosts Gold Coast police

Police numbers on Queensland’s Gold Coast will be permanently boosted with a new tactical crime unit and a second dog squad.

Thirty-five extra officers will be appointed after criticism of the Queensland Government over a temporary police blitz aimed at stemming a spate of serious crime.

Police Minister Neil Roberts say a quarter of the new positions funded in this year’s state budget will be allocated to the Gold Coast.

“The serious and violent crime squad will be a permanent feature on the Gold Coast with 20 people,” he said.

“In addition to that, there’s been 15 officers allocated to Coomera – the start of a tactical crime squad will be allocated this year.

“There’ll be seven officers and there’ll be seven next year.

“A three-person dog squad based out of Coomera plus some additional extra duties officers in the region as well.”
