MP echoes tough crime stance

POLICE Minister Jack Dempsey took the opportunity to echo the government's tough stance on crime on the first full day of parliament sitting in Brisbane yesterday.

Condamine MP Ray Hopper asked Mr Dempsey what the LNP was doing to crack down on outlaw motorcycle gang crime during question time.

Mr Dempsey said the public would not tolerate blatant, violent crime.

"We will act to revitalise frontline policing with 1100 new frontline police where they are needed to fight crime - on the street," he said.

Mr Dempsey said the LNP was also working to introduce the toughest illegal firearm laws in Australia.

Mr Dempsey said 50 non-operational police officers would be returned to the frontline over four years, meaning an additional "200 experienced offices" would be fighting crime in Queensland.
