Significant number of NT police officers on sick leave says NT Chief Minister

NT Chief Minister Natasha Fyles says the Police Force has had a $120 million budget boost since Labor came to government.

It comes after the NT Police Association’s latest survey revealed 97 per cent of respondents don’t believe there are enough police and don’t feel supported by the current government.

Ms Fyles told Katie Woolf there are a significant number of police officers on sick leave for mental health and other issues.

The Chief added that an inquiry into the Force isn’t needed with listening key to addressing the concerns.
