Ensuring Safety and Justice

Everyone needs to feel safe in their community – South Australians deserve access to the best emergency services, police force and a criminal justice system which is efficient and reduces offending.

 

We Believe

  • Community safety is paramount – emergency services and the justice system must be focussed on effectively protecting South Australians from harm and crime
  • The legal system should respond to the needs of all South Australians and uphold the values of fairness and justice at every turn
  • The courts system should uphold personal responsibility and work to rehabilitate criminals to stop them reoffending, especially vulnerable young people
  • Resources need to be used in an efficient manner to provide services which reduce crime and increase safety
  • In ending violence against women and children
  • In preventing crime before it occurs and mitigating potential natural disasters

 

How we will achieve this together

  • 6.1 Collaborating with police, emergency services and government agencies to deliver the best possible community safety outcomes
  • 6.2 Reducing criminal behaviour through efficient, effective policing and a corrections system that reduces reoffending
  • 6.3 Ensuring that justice is efficient and accessible, and that victims of crime are supported
  • 6.4 Dealing with emerging trends in crime, as well as entrenched issues such as domestic and family violence and substance abuse
  • 6.5 Delivering a safer community through a fair and transparent justice system
