Comment on Fast-tracked police recruits begin in Alice Springs by James T Smerk.

It’s always funny when these numbers are talked about. I would be curious to know what is the normal number that would be recruited over this period, and what is the real extra number?
I’m sure police leave in the meantime and these numbers might only be enough to cover the loss of people. Who knows?
