"We are seeing a downward trend in the following major crime categories in the Blacktown Council area:
  • 'Steal from person is down 15.9%'
  • 'Malicious damage to property is down 11.1%'
"Our police have been doing an outstanding job in the local community to ensure crime remains stable and these results reflect their hard work. I commend their outstanding efforts.
"I also applaud the community for doing their part in the fight against crime by reporting incidents and being vigilant.
"The NSW Liberals & Nationals Government has worked hard to deliver extra police officers and resources as well as strengthen police powers to combat crime.
