Cairns and Far North Queensland are great places to live, work and grow. More and more families are moving up north to make the most of our unique lifestyle.
Campbell Newman's government has cut Police service jobs and is closing the regional office in Cairns and shifting police support resources to Townsville.
This will make it more difficult for hardworking sworn officers and police staff to do their jobs, and hurt their ability to deliver efficient and responsive services to protect Cairns families.
This petition calls on MPs from the Cairns region to stick up for police services and get the Newman government to reverse its decision to move resources away from Cairns, a decision that could put safety in Cairns at risk.
