FIRST SOD TURNED FOR NEW GUNNEDAH POLICE STATION
A new era of policing in the region commenced today, with the ceremonial turning of the first sod at the site of Gunnedah’s new multi-million dollar police station.
Minister for Police Troy Grant was joined by Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson and Oxley Local Area Command Acting Superintendent Jeff Budd to mark the special milestone.
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government will always put community safety first, and our investment in the refurbishment of Gunnedah Police Station highlights this,” Mr Grant said.
“As a former country police officer, I know how much better the police here in Gunnedah will be able to serve the local community’s safety needs out of a new, modern work place.
“I commend the unwavering advocacy of local member Kevin Anderson, who has worked tirelessly with local police to see this project become a reality.”
Mr Anderson said he was delighted to mark the first stage of construction with the Police Minister.
“Today signals a new era for community safety in Gunnedah,” Mr Anderson said.
“Our local police do an incredible job on the beat and behind the scenes, preventing and disrupting crime.
“I am proud to be a member of a government that prioritises funding for regional policing, and I am confident the new state-of-the-art station will serve the Gunnedah community well for generations to come.”
