TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
This petition of certain residents of the ACT draws to the attention of, and requests that the Assembly notes that:

a) Ajijo Grocery and Convenience Store is a valued local business serving the suburb of Coombs and Wright;

b) since opening Ajijo has experienced crime targeted at the business, including violence and theft;

c) recently it has taken police more than 8 hours to attend the crime scene when the premises was attacked during the day while staff were present.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly call on the ACT Government to :

a) make police presence in the vicinity of the shop visible and regular;

b) make sure there are sufficient police for a much faster response time.
