Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight has called for more Police ahead of the upcoming March State Election.

Speaking on Triple M on Tuesday morning, Cr Knight said that Coffs harbour desperately needs 17 more Police officers in the Coffs Clarence Police District.

"I know a lot of the stuff that goes on, we've been denied a lot of extra police. We need approximately 17, they're not coming", Cr Knight said.

With the NSW State election due on March 23, the Mayor said the community needs to call on the candidates, as well as the sitting members at all levels.

"We need to put pressure on the candidates, but also the sitting members at the moment", Cr Knight told Triple M.

While she says the Bypass is important, she is calling for more full time teachers and more nurses.

"We've got teachers who are only on part-time, or only on contract, and can't get a mortgage", Cr Knight said.
