NSW Labor has unveiled a more than $240 million police funding package that includes putting more officers on the beat, investing in new technology and improving security at police stations. Leader Luke Foley announced on Sunday that he would install 170 more police officers than the Coalition has promised if he is elected to government, with a total of 480 new recruits to start in his first term. He matched the Liberal Party's pledge of $100 million funding for high-tech police equipment, saying the money would go into a Police Technology Fund used to support investment in mobile fingerprint scanners, body worn video cameras and digitally-issued infringement notices. Flanked by the Shadow Minister for Police, Steve Whan, Mr Foley also committed an additional $50 million towards improving security at older police stations and $17 million to the Police Force Wellbeing Fund. Mr Foley said he would be guided by the NSW Police Commissioner as to where the new recruits were sent and the number had been developed in consultation with police on the ground and the NSW Police Association. The figure includes 180 police officers already committed to start in August, with the remaining 300 to be rolled out over the next three consecutive years. The Coalition last week made similar pledges, promising $100 million funding for high-tech police equipment and to put 310 new police officers on the beat, a figure Labor and the NSW Police Association said was reheated. Mr Foley said he could "go further" than the Mr Baird because his plan involved using the profits of a publicly owned electricity network. "We use the profits for the public good. Mr Baird will send the profits to a private owner under his privatisation policy," Mr Foley said. When asked how he would be funding the crime package, he said it was affordable and had been costed by the Parliamentary Budget Office. "The Parliamentary Budget Office will be reporting in full on all our expenditure and revenue commitments. It is affordable, this is costed by the Parliamentary Budget Office, and in eight or nine days time you will get a full report from the Parliamentary Budget Office on our expenditure and revenue commitments," Mr Foley said. Mr Foley said he wanted more details about Premier Mike Baird's plans to tackle crystal amphetamine use, revealed in the Herald today, but a "multifaceted solution" was needed to stop the ice epidemic rather than a law and order focused plan. "Which is why we've committed to a drug summit focusing on the ice epidemic that would bring together police, paramedics, nurses from our emergency departments, health professionals, people who run drug and alcohol rehab facilities. There is no one answer to the ice epidemic, it will need to be a multifaceted solution," he said. When quizzed about his absence from a $1 billion road announcement made by his colleague on Saturday, Mr Foley said he was surprised to have been criticised. "I have three children under eight. I try very hard to spend some time with them on Saturday mornings. I was surprised that Mr Baird chose to criticise me for it. I spent the afternoon in Auburn at the largest African community festival in Australia. It was terrific," he said. Foley's plan follows a string of law and order commitments made by the Baird government including jailing child sex offenders for life and giving police more powers to seize assets from suspected criminals.
