New police for the Wimmera is much needed.
For the past few years, police resources have been stretched to the limit, watching mental health patients at Wimmera Base Hospital, through to patrolling smaller Wimmera towns without a service policeman.
The new police will have added responsibility of looking after prisoners in custody, but hopefully this can alleviate some of the problems faced by the region’s overworked police.
Horsham is the centre of the Wimmera, it needs to have police who can serve the whole region in times of need. Now all that is needed is a station which can cater for a growing staff.
