Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 15 February 2005:

What was the average number of police officers rostered on duty in the ACT per shift over the 24 December 2004 to 3 January 2005 Christmas – New Year period;

What was the average response time to incident call-outs during this period;

Were any ACT police stations closed during this period; if so, which ones were closed and when.
