People scanning IDs in Safe Night Precincts will no longer need to be licensed crowd controllers in certain circumstances under changes to the Security Licence Exemption for ID Scanning Guideline.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said the Palaszczuk Government had heard the concerns of the industry.

“We’ve listened to the industry, who have said that the requirement of an additional security guard to scan IDs is a significant financial impost on them,” Mrs D’Ath said.

“We understand their concerns. We have taken into consideration the safety of Queenslanders and the views of the industry as part of this decision.

“We promised to review the Security Licence Exemption for ID Scanning Guideline and through this process we identified changes that could occur.

“The guideline has been amended to allow an ID scanner operator to be unlicensed on the condition they are supervised indirectly by a licenced crowd controller on duty on the licenced premises.”

Mrs D’Ath said the condition that a licensed security provider must deal with a banned person had been retained following the review to ensure someone with the most appropriate training could deal with situations that could lead to conflict.

“The Palaszczuk Government is delivering on its commitment to keep Queenslanders safe through its Tackling Alcohol-Fuelled Violence policy,” Mrs D’Ath said.

“Our policy is based on evidence, illustrated by the National Alliance for Action on Alcohol’s decision to rank Queensland’s approach to tackling alcohol-fuelled violence the best in Australia for two years running.”
