Lovely to meet with Kristen Crasto this morning, from Somerset College who was recently awarded the Order of Australia medal.

This medal recognises Australians who have demonstrated outstanding service or exceptional achievement.

She also got to meet Angie Bell MP who stopped by the office to congratulate her. Well done Kirsten!

Child in care allowed to catch train to ‘score’ drugs off mum on Gold Coast

The Opposition has called for an overhaul of the system and an investigation into this latest case.

“I am appalled that Labor is effectively sanctioning the taking of illegal drugs by our most vulnerable kids,” Gold Coast LNP MP Ros Bates.

“I call on Child Safety Minister Di Farmer to ensure her department fully reviews this case.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to explain why her child safety department is turning a blind eye to kids in care taking drugs.

“The child safety system should be helping these kids get off drugs and clean up their lives, not facilitating it.

“It’s another sign of a child safety system in crisis under Labor.”

This is the older kids.. What about the young children who are forceably medicated just so carers can tolerate them.

The qualifications of DOCS workers also need to be reviewed!

How does this not surprise me !!!! Our child safety are ridiculous. For years I have been giving them evidence of emotional and physical harm on a child that took the family law courts 6 YEARS AND NUMEROUS JUDGES TO RECOGNISE !!!! Our systems are failing our kids

Rosemary Norman-Hill could add to this a 1000 times over with horrific stories.

Ms Farmer is not interested. We have emailed her and the Premier about the situation in residential living on the Gold Coast. With evidence. Her response? She blocks you so that you cannot tell her anything else. Her staff are above the law. They are accountable to no one. There is no transparency in their actions. They choose which of their policies and practices they feel like following on that particular day. As a senior officer said to me in front of witnesses "I have no interest in the truth, this will be determined the way I want it to be". And his managers are aware he said this. And the Minister is aware of this. He is still working in the Department. Obviously his standards are acceptable to Ms Farmer. #October2020

Ha!! I'm glad someone up high is finally questioning this! This is just starting to peel the bandaid to open the huge wound already there! Kids are doing this because their role model parents show them its OK to do this! And like lighting the fires there is NO severe consequences for them in the end

And why at state level has more police presence not being discussed either? For all the crimes happening locally? ... Let's cut all the state government workers pay checks and put them on minimum wages, give them a wake up call of what real life is about out there!!

Tried to advise DOCS about drug use by a family member and her teenage son in front of younger children and they didn’t want to know; we were told to get the evidence. What a joke!

This is just so wrong. These kids are meant to be cared for, not treated like this.

They're not interested and they know all about it. They block your emails if you try to tell them. Child Safety is anything but.

So many concerned residents at our Gold Coast crime forum tonight.

Labor’s band-aid solutions and softer laws simply aren’t working.

The Gold Coast’s population is growing and that means we need increased resources and an investment in technology to make sure our police can properly respond.

The rate of the Gold Coast’s population growth would mean 37 new police officers every year. Happy to see that.
