Police Commissioner outlines his suggestions to tackle alcohol-related harm

Police Commissioner Michael Murphy says there will be no impact on the force following the Chief’s resignation with the focus still on renewing the strategic plan.

He told Katie Woolf the 2030 plan includes ways to improve community safety, officer wellbeing, the restructure of the police force as well as innovation and future proofing. 

Commissioner Murphy says there has been a decline in anti-social behaviour after trading hours were reduced to midday on weekdays at Darwin bottle shops.

He says he’d also like to see restrictions on the sale of 1125ml bottles of spirits and more scrutiny around where people drink.
