Police not waiting to be called to enforce DV orders

 

 

Alice Springs police are not waiting to be called before acting on domestic violence, Detective Superintendent Brent Warren told the Alice Springs Town Council last night. He said domestic violence assaults make up "a huge component of our violent assaults work" and that detectives are working on "a more proactive approach in dealing with victims and offenders": "We're monitoring people who've got domestic violence orders, going out and doing checks without being called. We're checking on a person: if they're a high risk victim we're making sure the offender is not around at the time or otherwise breaking the conditions of that order." KIERAN FINNANE reports.
