NSW Police launch domestic and family violence campaign


THE NSW Police Force has commenced a proactive state-wide operation targeting perpetrators of domestic and family violence to coincide with the global ‘16 Days of Activism’ campaign.

Launched on Thursday 25 November 2021, which was also the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and running until World Human Rights Day on Friday 10 December, the ‘16 Days of Activism’ campaign calls for much-needed change in the fight against gender-based violence.

Across the 11 Northern Region police districts, officers will be assisted by specialist police from the Northern Region’s Domestic Violence High Risk Offender Team (DVHROT), Proactive Crime Team and Region Enforcement Squad (RES) to roll out the operation.

Police will also take part in awareness-raising events.

Manning Great Lakes Police District Commander and Northern Region Sponsor for Domestic Violence, Superintendent Christopher Schilt, said police are committed to disrupting and preventing recidivist offending and ensuring the safety of victims.

“Police unite with the community during these awareness campaigns to show our commitment to helping those who experience domestic or family violence, and we will continue to work to bring perpetrators to justice,” Superintendent Schilt said.

“There is no excuse for domestic and family violence and our proactive operation will continue to target high-risk domestic-violence offenders and ensure they are held accountable for their actions.”

During the state-wide operation, police will implement a number of proactive strategies including, Apprehended Domestic Violence Order compliance checks, proactive checks targeting known offenders and providing additional support to at-risk victims.

This year so far, more than 20,300 compliance checks have been conducted across Northern Region, to ensure apprehended domestic violence orders (ADVO) are being complied with.
