A Safe Night Out Strategy - QLD Alcohol intiative

15 September 2014

If you can’t play nice, you’re out of the game.

We're red carding anti-social behaviour

New initiatives are being rolled out to restore responsible behaviour and respect, stamp out alcohol and drug-related violence and ensure Queensland’s nightlife is safe for all. Read more click on image

New laws and penalties will ensure police have the powers and resources to respond quickly and effectively to alcohol and drug-related violence and antisocial behaviour where needed. Banning orders, increased fines and penalties will deter potential offenders, and compulsory counselling and community service will help address the behaviours that contribute to the violence.

Those who commit serious offences will face stronger penalties, with increased jail time, life-time bans and a maximum penalty of life imprisonment for coward punch offenders who cause death.

For more information on stronger prevention, more policing and harsher penalties, read the full Safe Night Out Strategy or the Safe Night Out Frequently Asked Questions.
