DV Breaches May Stats - Sunshine Coast


Domestic violence protection order breach stats are out for May.
The rise in domestic violence breaches has been 8.5 per cent over the last year for Queensland and is once again a record high number for a 12 month period.
“In the 12 months leading up to May this year, there were 28,323 breaches of domestic violence prevention orders.

“Victims of domestic and family violence trust the Palaszczuk Labor Government to protect them but they’re being let down.

“On the Sunshine Coast, there were 1,267 breaches in the 12 months leading up to May 2019.

“This is a 19 per cent rise in one year.

“Something has clearly gone terribly wrong when breaches of DV protection orders continue to rise this fast.

“Labor’s priorities are all wrong and they need to fix our system.

“Rather than helping victims of domestic and family violence, Labor is supporting public servant perpetrators with 10 days of domestic and family violence leave.

“Minister Di Farmer is failing to take real action on domestic violence and child safety, and Queensland’s most vulnerable are continuing to suffer as a result.”

Stephen Bennett mp
LNP Shadow Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence
