Banned drinkers register successful in reducing assault in Northern Territory

Date posted: 8 December 2011

Northern Territory Police Commissioner John McRoberts says there has been a 16% reduction in the number of reported assaults in Alice Springs since the banned drinkers register started. There are now more than 1,900 people on the register across the Territory, which was implemented as part of the Territory Government's Enough is enough alcohol reforms. There has also been a significant drop in property offences and anti-social behaviour, proving the policy is working in Central Australia.
