More Cops On The Coast Than First Thought

The Police Minister Has Updated Numbers

More Cops On The Coast Than First Thought

Concerns were raised earlier in the month when Police numbers for the Gold Coast were revealed.

After stating there were 842 Officers here, the State Government is now saying that figure is actually over 1000.

Police Minister Mark Ryan says the original figure is more of a day-to-day headcount that can fluctuate.

"It is not, as the Commissioner advises, a useful or reliable number for analysis," said Minister Ryan.

"The actual strength number can fluctuate because of the temporary presence of a Taskforce, retirements or an influx of new recruits."
