New police on the Chifley beat

CHIFLEY Police District, which Cowra is now part of, will receive an additional five police officers as part of a roll out across the Western Region over the next 12 months.

Twenty-eight additional police have been assigned to the Western Region in the first installment of new police positions during 2019-20. None of the new officers are expected to be stationed at Cowra.

Western Region Commander Geoff McKechnie said the announcement is a win for Western Region and all of its communities.

"It's a really significant number of additional police that are being added to the region," he said.

"It will greatly increase the capacity of the police districts to meet the ever-increasing demands and will allow Commanders to deploy officers in all proactive roles aimed at preventing and disrupting criminal activity across the region."
