LAW & ORDER

Policy
Provide for the security of its citizens, while maintaining respect for privacy.

Policy Methods (Federal & State)
To help achieve this Sustainable Australia Party will:

  • Increase police recruitment and resources in order to better protect our communities and properly cater for population growth.
  • Better prevent and respond to domestic violence through increased funding for early intervention and education programs, frontline services, emergency accommodation and legal services.
  • Provide appropriate legislative power and resources to detect and prevent terrorist attacks before they occur.
  • Adopt strong counter-radicalisation strategies, to help prevent religious and political extremism.
  • Include sunset clauses on all national security legislation requiring re-passage of legislation after ten (10) years.
  • Ensure the reasonable privacy and rights of citizens to freedom of speech, movement, religion, commerce, employment, internet usage and association, and protect ordinary Australians from abuse by governments and businesses.
  • Prevent firearm violence, including via best practice firearms registration systems.(1)

Footnotes:

  1. SAP has no plans to change gun laws but relevant legislation would be addressed on its merits if elected, in an evidence-based way after careful stakeholder engagement.
