Patrols to maintain community safety
THE NSW Government welcomes the immediate action from the NSW Police Force to stand up Strike Force Dribs and direct extra police resources to Western Sydney following the recent violence in Wakeley.
Strike Force Dribs is tasked with increasing the police presence in the area to reassure the community and keep them safe.
More than 70 additional police officers across general duties and specialist commands are on the streets, conducting high-visibility patrols to maintain community safety. Those patrols began last night.
In addition, 32 investigators are working under Strike Force Dribs to investigate the public order incident outside the Church that night, during which projectiles were thrown at police, officers were injured, police vehicles were damaged and property stolen.
These investigators are collating evidence including mobile phone and CCTV vision with the aim of identifying, arresting, charging and bringing those responsible before the courts.
Any witnesses and anyone with mobile phone vision who has not yet spoken to police, should call police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Minister for Police and Counter-terrorism Yasmin Catley said: “Everyone has the right to go about their daily lives and practice their faith free from violence or intimidation.
“These extra boots on the ground will help provide calm and safety at a time when it’s needed most.
“Over the past four days, we’ve seen the best of the best from the NSW Police Force. These officers run towards danger and put their lives on the line to protect the community. I’ve never been prouder.”
