Patrol time extends

The Noongar Community Patrol has had its contract to patrol the CBD extended for another year at a cost of $50,000. Council first hired the patrol in September 1998.

The group provides street-based community intervention services operating between 4:00am and midnight on Thursdays and between 6:00pm and 2:00am on Fridays and Saturdays.

Councillor Bert Tudori said the patrols had been doing a good job. While supporting the patrol’s efforts, he said he did not believe it was council’s role to take over law and order in its jurisdiction.

“That’s up to the police,” Mr Tudori said.

However, council is considering extending the group’s contract to work in the daylight hours.

Councillor Judy McEvoy said there had been some horrific incidents in the CBD during the day, particularly around Forrest Place.
