  • Labor’s failure to back a crackdown on youth offenders shows they are soft on crime.

    Labor is refusing to back new police powers to bring serial youth offenders to justice.

    Labor won’t back our new ‘post and boast’ laws to stop young thugs crowing about their crimes on social media.

    Across Tasmania, people are crying out for tougher action to stop the crime wave of youth offenders.

    Labor and Rebecca White are refusing to listen, and refusing to back taking action.

    Only a re-elected majority Rockliff Liberal Government with its 2030 Strong Plan for Tasmania’s future will recruit 60 more police, taking numbers to a record high of 1,521 full time officers and set up a permanent Police Strikeforce to target serial criminals.
