Law & Order

Policy

Better provide for the security of Australia's citizens and community, while improving our justice system.

Policy Methods (Federal & State)

To help achieve this Sustainable Australia Party will:

  • Better prevent and respond to domestic violence through increased funding for early intervention and education programs, frontline services, emergency accommodation and legal services
  • Better address mental health problems through the health system (also see Health policy)
  • Promote policies to reduce recidivism and increase restorative justice practices, including prioritising the rehabilitation of those in jail through counseling and retraining
  • Increase police recruitment and resources in order to better protect our communities and properly cater for population growth
  • Provide appropriate legislative power and resources to detect and prevent terrorist attacks before they occur
  • Adopt strong counter-radicalisation strategies, to help prevent politicalĀ andĀ religious extremism
  • Prevent firearm violence, including via best practice firearms registration systems(1)

Footnotes:

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