NSW 2150 Case of cops and dobbers How we reported Ms Judge's disclosure of political donations last year. Is Strathfield Plaza a good location for the police? www.innerwestweekly.com.au From Page 1 Opposition Fair Trading spokesman Greg Aplin said this week there appeared to be a potential conflict of interest. ''There is community concern about the donations-for- decision culture in the State Labor Government,'' he said. With the police station lease due to end in March, Mr Kelly confirmed on Tuesday a ''new heads of agreement'' had been signed to move the police station into Strathfield Plaza. The lease was finalised on February 16. Ms Judge said she had spoken to Mr Kelly on January 16 about maintaining a police station in the centre of Strathfield. But she said she had since learned that United Group Ser- vices, a private company con- tracted by NSW Police, had writ- ten a submission, dated January 7, about negotiations for the Strathfield police shopfront station to move into the plaza. ''That's nine days before I first raised the issue of Strathfield police station with the Police Minister,'' Ms Judge said. Part of the submission, ob- tained by the Inner-West Weekly, shows the rent would be $26,000 per year with no rent review in the second year. There would be a CPI increase in the third year. This is compared with the $198,000-a-year net rental on the larger, existing police station site, which also houses the commuter crime unit. Under the proposal, the unit will move to a refurbished Lidcombe police station that will be sold and leased back to the police department. Labor-turned-independent councillor Paul Barron said Ms Judge had promised a fully- functional station and had ''failed to deliver''. Cr Lim claimed Ms Judge ''hasn't been telling us what's going on with many things, including Strathfield police station''. Liberal councillor Bill Carney said while new the location would hopefully deter crime, it hadn't got rid of the main problem. ''It's still just a shopfront,'' he said. 31 34 32 Index 8 Police Beat 22 Pet of the Week 22 Sudoku 24 One Degree 26 Opinion 30 Alive 31 What'sOn 35 Home Living 47 TV guide 46 Sport Today Mostly Fine.
