National Launches Policing Policy in South Canterbury

In a delicious piece of irony National Party Leader Don Brash launched National's Policing policy in Timaru - the town where Helen Clark's bodyguards were recently convicted of criminal charges that arose in the course of serving her.

Highlights of the Policy include sensible stuff like:

*Boost the police front line to Australian police-to-population levels

*Restore confidence in the 111 system with experienced, retired staff to join the communications centres in the meantime and ensure traffic patrols are diverted to respond to 111.

*Abolish parole for all repeat and violent criminals

*Scrap quota ticketing and the emphasis on revenue gathering.
