1,500 more police for our communities
The Government recently announced the largest increase in police resourcing in more than 30 years, with an investment of $583.6 million.
This investment will deliver 1,500 extra police to better serve and protect the people of NSW. The commitment will enable deployment of specialists in areas such as domestic violence and child protection.
Protecting our children from harm
In October 2018, the NSW Government announced an extensive $127.2 million funding package to ensure children in our state are safe and are protected and supported by the institutions entrusted with their care.
This investment, in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, is in addition to the Government’s existing commitments to the National Redress Scheme and criminal justice and civil litigation law reforms.
Supporting our farmers through their toughest years yet
Nearly all of NSW was recently declared drought affected, hurting farmers and the agricultural industry that are critical to the livelihood of our state.
Our government acted to assist those affected by drought through our $500.0 million Emergency Drought Relief Package. This package will help fund vital support for our farmers and regional communities, including transport subsidies and farming fee cuts, registration waivers for agricultural vehicles as well as rural mental health and counselling services.
