Coomera Cops Struggling Amid Massive Workload

Major Understaffing Concerns

There are fears police on the northern end of the Gold Coast are being overworked and on the verge of quitting due to the soaring workload.

It's after Queensland Government released it's latest police figures on the nine month period between July 1 2017 and March 21 2018.

Coomera police officers responded to the most number of calls for help with 22,773, with Southport in second with 20,887.

However the station only employs a police strength force of 58 officers, compared to Southport's 99 and 119 in Surfers Paradise.

Each officer responded to an average of 393 calls over the nine months, with Nerang the next busiest with 316.
