The State Opposition has pledged Protective Services Officers will patrol two regional bus interchanges and shopping malls, under a tough-on-crime Coalition election bid.

Shadow Police Minister Ed O’Donohue told Tony Jones the PSOs would patrol the Moorabool bus interchange in Geelong and the Little Bridge bus interchange in Ballarat.

He said traders welcomed the move in Ballarat precinct, described as a “cesspool of crime”.

The Andrews Government has also promised to expand the PSO program.
