Crime and Community Safety Petition

This week, Dr Rachel Carling-Jenkins presented a petition to the Legislative Council of Victoria on Crime and Community Safety. The petition was one of the highest online petitions ever tabled in the Council, receiving 1860 signatures from concerned Victorians. 

The Facebook Group, "Protect Victoria" created and promoted this petition.

 

Crime and Community Safety Petition

The petition of certain citizens of the state of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that we would like the safety and security we once enjoyed in Victoria to be given back to us. Due to faults on both sides of the Victorian government, this has been taken away from us.

The petitioners therefore request the Legislative Council call on the government to —

(1)   not grant bail or early parole to offenders, no matter what their age, who are convicted of violent home invasions, carjackings, robberies and muggings;

(2)   have the Victorian judicial system consider 'community expectations' and the long-time pain, both physical and mental, to the victims of violent home invasions, carjackings, robberies and muggings when sentencing offenders, no matter what their age;

(3)   allow the victims of violent home invasions, carjackings, robberies and muggings to have a say in the sentencing of the offenders of these crimes;

(4)   that they and the Victorian judicial system have a 'duty of care' to the 'safety and security' of the Victorian people; therefore, both must do everything within their power to protect us; and

(5)   Provide more assistance, both financially and through support services, to the victims of crime, including home invasions, carjackings, robberies and muggings.

Tabled by Dr CARLING-JENKINS (Western Metropolitan) (1860 signatures).
