Questions over Alice’s future

With Alice Springs’ extended youth curfew coming to an end tomorrow morning, there are questions about what happens next… That was amplified yesterday after an early morning home invasion in the town’s suburban East Side, which police described as “particularly violent”. A woman was hit in the head multiple times before the attackers, who had smashed their way in with an axe, stole car keys, jewellery, a laptop and cash. Chief Minister Eva Lawler has assured that there’s a plan to prevent the situation from escalating again. She says 25 extra police officers will be based in the town for at least 11 weeks, with help from a second group of 10 SA Police officers assisting over the coming week.
