Queensland has broken its own disgraceful record for the number of domestic violence order breaches, as the Labor Palaszczuk Government fails to introduce a plan to fix the crisis.

New data released by the Queensland Police Service revealed more than 28,200 breaches have been recorded in the past 12 months.

That's a rise of ten per cent, compared to February 2018.

Shadow Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence Stephen Bennett said more people, especially women, are being put in danger under Labor.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk's failure to act on domestic and family violence is putting more Queenslanders in harms way," Mr Bennett said.

"Just days after International Women's Day, these statistics are horrific.

"Mt Isa, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast, Logan, Ipswich, Brisbane and the Gold Coast have all experienced substantial increases.

"This follows the shocking revelation that over 1,300 Queensland children were harmed in 2016-17 after they were deemed safe by Child Safety.

"Minister Di Farmer is failing to take 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 take action on domestic and family violence prevention and I urge the Palaszczuk Labor Government to do the same.

"Only the LNP is tough on crime and are committed to keeping all Queenslanders safe.
