New South Wales arrests 648 offenders of domestic violence, just within four days. See, that is what I love about Australia: no half measures are being taken. New South Wales had grave concerns for the victims, so the authorities acted on it. The four-day operation resulted in those 648 arrests, with more than a thousand charges laid, also for possessing prohibited weapons like an axe, machete, and knuckle dusters.
The police said that domestic and family-related violence is the most challenging community issue of our generation. I fully agree. Research tells us that without appropriate police targeting, a person who has been charged with a strangulation or suffocation offense is likely to progress to homicide offending. By acting on it, the risk of harm to current and potential future victims is being reduced significantly.
