Members Statement - Brighton Crime


‘Brighton Crime’.

Thursday, 7 April 2022.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:54):

Victorians have a right to feel safe in their homes. Disturbingly, there has been a frightening increase in the number of home
invasions in Brighton.

As a recent victim said to me: it is extremely disconcerting how brazen these criminals are. There are clearly not sufficient deterrents in place to prevent this type of behaviour. Most alarmingly, the police said this was occurring every night.
