The Drugs and Crime Prevention Committee has released its report on strategies to reduce assaults in public places in Victoria. Among the 37 recommendations included:
- That an offence of assaulting, obstructing, hindering or delaying a hospital, or health worker or a licensed security guard or emergency worker in the execution or performance of their duties, be enacted in Victoria.
- That Victoria Police liaise with the Australian Security Industry Association Limited (ASIAL) to examine ways in which the police and the private security industry can collaborate more closely and work more effectively in addressing public order and security issues.
