Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : March 4th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, March 5, 2009 23 STREETVIEW Plaza gets thumbs up Marco Giuliani Craig Booth Pranav Prajapati Packo Bahamonde Aaron Cairns The drama over Strathfield police station is continuing to create quite a stir in the local community, with some residents saying the area is in need of a fully-functional station. Marco Giuliani, of Strathfield: I think having the police station at Strathfield Plaza is a good idea because it's right in the middle. The problem is that it is small, it's not really a police station at all and there's only a few cops in there from what I've heard. If it's not going to house a real police station, then what's the point? Craig Booth, of South Strathfield: I don't see cops anyway so it doesn't matter. I'm here all week and I don't see any cops around. I would like to see a proper station in Strathfield and this one is going to be shared with transit officers. Pranav Prajapati, of Strathfield: It's a good idea for them to be located at Strathfield Plaza because they are contactable and it makes things easier. I just haven't seen police around but they seem to have enough resources and they are here when you need them. Packo Bahamonde, of Burwood: I've lived in the area for a while and I guess having the station located at its current site definitely brings a safety presence. What people don't realise is that the area is becoming more populated and the crime rate will increase because of its population. There might not be a proper station but it's all psychological. When you walk past the building and see the big police sign you think there are a lot of cops in there. I think it should stay where it is. Aaron Cairns, of St Marys: I travel and work late at night in this area and seeing the police presence around makes me feel a lot safer and having it based at the Plaza will increase the presence. The new location will deter people from committing crimes because it is located right in the centre of the area.
