Police seek more security after Parramatta shooting

THE New South Wales Police Association has promised to do more to protect its members after the murder of a civilian police accountant last week.

Curtis Cheng was shot dead by 15-year-old Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad before Mohammad was killed during a shootout at Parramatta Police Station on Friday.

The head of the state's police association, Pat Gooley, has since called on Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione to increase security for police staff at all stations.

He said the shooting was the first time state police had been targeted in a terror incident.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull met Muslim leaders on Sunday, urging families to form a "frontline" defence against youth radicalisation.

Mr Turnbull also urged the wider community not to associate such terrorism acts with the general Muslim community or its faith.
