Confidence the Government's spend to combat ram-raids will make a difference.

More than $562 million will be spread over four years for more frontline police, a new firearms unit and a package for businesses to protect themselves.

Police Association President Chris Cahill told Mike Hosking police resources are stretched hugely across the board.

“In the last few years, we’ve had 50 percent increases in things like family violence attendance, mental health attendance, that big increase in gang numbers.”
