Register call a cry for help
Written on the 12 August 2017
Business leaders have backed calls from police for the introduction of a Kimberley-wide banned drinker register but the State Government is far from convinced.
Mr Taylor said Broome had many of the same issues as the NT and urgent action was needed to tackle unacceptable rates of alcohol consumption by individuals in the broader community and the subsequent effect on health, crime and domestic violence.
Kimberley district Superintendent Allan Adams said police were keen to pursue the conversation around a banned drinker-type register.
"Speaking to people from the NT, the approach works in reducing the alcohol-related harm in those areas with historical concentrated alcohol dysfunction," he said.
