Domestic Violence breaches across the Sunshine Coast over a 12 month period

Letter to the Editor
 
Shocking new statistics have once again outlined Queensland’s growing problem with domestic violence and the Labor Palaszczuk Government’s lack of vision to fix the crisis.

New data released by the Queensland Police Service this month, revealed more than 28,200 breaches of domestic violence protection order have been recorded in the past 12 months.

That’s a rise of ten per cent or more than 2600 breaches compared to February 2018.

And it’s even worse on the Sunshine Coast, with an increase of 14.6% in 12 months.

Labor’s failure to act on domestic and family violence is putting more Queenslanders in harm’s way.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and her embattled Minister Di Farmer aren’t taking real action on domestic violence and on child safety.

Queensland’s most vulnerable are continuing to suffer as a result.

I welcome the federal Government’s commitment to stamp out domestic and family violence prevention and I urge the Palaszczuk Labor Government to do the same.

The Palaszczuk Labor Government needs to stop playing politics and follow the LNP’s commitment to make every Queenslander feel safe.
