Police presence in Pacific Pines

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Nigel Jesson
11 Pago Terrace

Total Signatures - 666

Sponsoring Member: Dr Alex Douglas MP

Posting Date: 15/07/2014

Closing Date: 17/10/2014

Tabled Date: 28/10/2014

Responded By: Hon Jack Dempsey MP on 20/11/2014

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the lack of police presence in the growing area of Pacific Pines, Oxenford, Maudland and surrounds given the significant population increase and growth in the area.


Pacific Pines has grown by over 100% in the last seven years and the increased numbers have contributed to an increase in the level of crime. Whilst there is a Police Beat in the estate, this is not a sufficient resource to complement the growth. A site to consider would be the building previously utilised as the Medical Centre which is ideally located both centrally and conveniently. This would negate the cost of building a new facility.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to investigate and implement a police station in the estate of Pacific Pines to ensure safety and security for the residents in the surrounding area, to improve response time to incidents and relieve pressure on the stations at Coomera and Nerang.
