The Royal Commission into Family Violence
Written on the 4 April 2016
The Royal Commission into Family Violence has been handed down.
As Shadow Minister for Prevention of Family Violence, I joined Opposition Leader Matthew Guy on the steps of Parliament House to speak to the media.
The Liberal Nationals Coalition offers bi-partisan support in the effort to prevent family violence.
The findings of the Royal Commission are an important step forward in continuing to reduce the impact of family violence and to support victims.
The Liberal Nationals Coalition believes that more police resources to enforce the law and provide support for victims on the frontline is a key element in any response to the Royal Commission.
The Royal Commission recommends additional specialist investigative and intelligence police resources as well as random case reviews which the Liberal Nationals Coalition strongly supports.
Police Association secretary Ron Iddles and Shadow Police Minister Edward O'Donohue have called for an additional 500 - 1000 police officers to implement the reforms.
