The trial has been in place now for a period to time in a number of Local Area Commands across NSW, one of Shoalhaven.
The pilot scheme has recently been extended to mid 2019.
The NSW Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) is a tool to enable a person who has concerns about their partner, or a third party who has concerns about a person’s partner, to find out if that partner has a history of domestic violence and related offences.
It is a police led scheme and is for both women and men who may be at risk.
The scheme is not a register or a list. It is a tool to seek information about a person’s violent offending history.
Concerned people, either a ‘primary person’ or a relevant ‘third party’ can make a DVDS application at a police station within the four pilot local area commands.
The NSW Police Force will receive and review applications and undertake criminal record checks to determine whether a relevant conviction exists that requires a disclosure.
Where a disclosure is needed, the disclosure will be made to the ‘primary person’.
For more information about the scheme, get on the Google Net and have a look at the NSW Police website.
Behaviour in public: The person that invented beer and spirits must have been drunk at the time, and I wonder if he or she ever realised what a problem for society Intoxicating liquor has become.
Most of us can get together and have a drink with friends before going home with the wobbly boots and wearing the beer goggles.
However, there is always the few that wreck it for the many; people who drink and become so affected by liquor that they either hurt themselves, hurt other people and or damage property.
This is not what the community wants or needs and it is certainly not what police and other community stakeholders want either.
So next time you are out on the town don’t drink such a quantity of intoxicating liquor that your actions while out in public will haunt you for the rest of your life
