Community Legal Centres Queensland, in collaboration with Queensland Police Service, has published resources on recent changes to Domestic and Family Violence legislation.

They have published a webinar on the Recent amendments to DV legislation and the role of the QPS High Risk teams.

The Not Now, Not Ever Report made a range of recommendations to review and amend domestic and family violence legislation to better protect victims and hold perpetrators to account.

Recommendations included the implementation of an integrated service response with high risk teams, mutual recognition of Domestic Violence Officers across Australia, a new offence of strangulation, and information sharing between agencies.

In the webinar, Senior Sergeant Sean Francis and Senior Research Officer, Christine Carney from the Queensland Police Service Domestic, Family Violence and Vulnerable Persons Unit discuss the role of the High Risk teams and the recent legislative changes related to domestic and family violence.

Additional resources can be found on the Community Legal Centres website.
