The Government is investing $45 million in a new frontline programme, instead of arming police. 

It includes $15 million for a Tactical Response Model and expansion of the frontline skills course. 

More than 200 additional police officers will be qualified to armed offenders squad standard.

Police Association President Chris Cahill joined Kerre McIvor.
