Cop shop wanted By Justin Flynn A new police station at Leopold would help ease the burden on Ocean Grove and the Bellarine Peninsula according to Liberal candidate for Bellarine Brian McKiterick. Mr McKiterick will push for the new station if successful at the upcoming state elections in November. "I'm looking at policing around the whole

of the Bellarine," he told the Voice. "I'm strongly advocating for another station at Leopold and that would alleviate the pressure on Ocean Grove Police Station. "If the police are patrolling over in Leopold or Portarlington, they're not here and criminals know the smaller stations don't have the manpower and aren't open all the time." Drysdale and Portarlington police stations

currently operate on a limited opening schedule. Mr McKiterick, has served as a police officer throughout Victoria for the past 40 years, said crime was an issue on the Bellarine. "I spoke to a lady in Queenscliff who heard some knocking on her door in the middle of the night and she went and hid in the bathroom and locked the bathroom door and

stayed there all night in a panic," he said. "I said to her 'why didn't you ring the police?' and she said 'I didn't think there'd be any police available'. "Having a police station in Leopold, knowing their response times are reduced and having a presence there would be a great benefit to this community." Continued page 5
