Today I spoke to Jason Christopher, a Cairns activist, about the proposed West Cairns police station. Listen below to our discussion.
Jason has been a voice of strength in the community about the crime crisis Cairns has been enduring. Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll and Police Minister Mark Ryan were in town last week to put forth the idea of building a new police station in West Cairns in the middle of the notorious "M" suburbs. The Cairns Villa and Leisure Park were touted as a possible site that Jason believes would be the ideal location. No doubt leading up to this year's state election crime will be a hot topic.
