Statement On One-Man Police Stations

14 April 2015

The Andrews Labor Government supports one-man police stations in regional Victoria. Despite reports to the contrary, 105 one-man police stations are not being phased out. We understand they are an important fabric of many small towns in this state.

As Minister for Police, I made a commitment in Parliament in February that this would keep all existing police stations open.

This government does not support the forcible closure of police stations against the wishes of local communities.

There are 329 police stations across the state and they all play a significant role in the work done by police.
