Police staffing

Mr TRELOAR (Flinders) (15:15): A supplementary to the Minister for Police: can the minister update or inform the house on the operational status of the police stations at Wudinna, Minnipa, Poochera and Wirrulla?

The Hon. C.J. PICTON (Kaurna—Minister for Police, Minister for Correctional Services, Minister for Emergency Services, Minister for Road Safety, Minister Assisting the Minister for Health, Minister Assisting the Minister for Mental Health and Substance Abuse) (15:15): I am happy to take the detail in terms of those specific questions on notice and I am also happy to talk to the member for Flinders who I know cares about his community.

Mr Pisoni interjecting:

The SPEAKER: The member for Unley is warned.

The Hon. C.J. PICTON: He is a very decent bloke. I have always worked well with the member for Flinders, so I look forward to discussing this further with him on the particular needs of policing in those communities. I know that the reforms that have happened so far that the police commissioner has rolled out have regard to metropolitan areas, and I know he will be turning his mind over time to regional areas and how we can improve our policing across the regions of South Australia, which is obviously very important.
