The Hon. T.A. FRANKS(14:50:08): Supplementary: when police stations are closed, what provisions exist for people who have turned up expecting help only to find a closed door to make an emergency phone call of some sort at that time?
The Hon. P. MALINAUSKAS(Minister for Police, Minister for Correctional Services, Minister for Emergency Services, Minister for Road Safety)(14:50:22): That is an articulate and well thought through question, as distinct from those opposite. SAPOL are putting in arrangements at those police stations that do close their front counter hours to allow for ready communication between the police station and a base of sorts. My advice is that SAPOL are installing intercoms, so that those people who roll up at police stations will be able to press an intercom and get emergency access to services.
The PRESIDENT: Order!
