Members Statement - Brighton Crime



Thursday, 18 May 2023.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:43):

Last night a recently widowed Brighton resident was home invaded for a second time in six months.

On the first occasion a gang broke in while she was in bed, only weeks after her husband passed away.

There has been a 578 per cent increase in aggravated burglaries in Brighton, and it sickens me that the State Labor Government keeps ignoring these ongoing crimes that are happening to the most vulnerable people in my community.
