Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Deputy Premier John Barilaro have thanked Minister for Police and Minister for Emergency Services, and Member for Dubbo, Troy Grant for his service to the people of New South Wales, following his announcement that he would not stand at the next state election.

“Troy has made an outstanding contribution during his time in the Parliament, both as the Member for Dubbo and in the Cabinet.” Premier Berejiklian said.

“I’m delighted Troy has agreed to continue to serve as Minister for Police and Minister for Emergency Services until the election.”

“He continues to bring vast experience and strong leadership to the New South Wales Police Force and to all our emergency services agencies.” Premier Berejiklian said.

Deputy Premier Barilaro said Minister Grant has proved to be a highly effective and respected Minister and would be missed by his parliamentary colleagues.

“Over the course of his political career Troy has given a great deal to the people of Dubbo and the people of this State.” Deputy Premier Barilaro said.

“As a former highly-decorated Police officer himself, Troy served in his ministerial roles with the sort of experience and insight the people of New South Wales expect and deserve.”

“Troy is someone who speaks frankly and works diligently, which is why he’s earned the respect of so many, including his colleagues, members of the New South Wales Police, his staff and his electors.”

“Working in politics is always a privilege but it also comes with great sacrifice, and I commend Troy for his incredible hard work and service over many years.” Deputy Premier Barilaro said.
