Tougher laws on agenda at Murgon crime meeting

TOUGHER legislation and more resources are being called for after Murgon residents discussed the reality of youth crime in their community.

Murgon Neighbourhood Watch members met with shadow police minister Trevor Watts, Nanango member Deb Frecklington and Murgon police representatives today.

"The youth crime is a very complex issue,” Mr Watts said.

They discussed pushing legislation to make breach of bail an offence, to try and curb juvenile offending.

More to come.
