Amendments to Youth Crime Bill

by | Mar 21, 2024 | Community, Youth | 0 comments

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has welcomed the passage of the bail reform legislation through the Legislative Assembly earlier this week, representing the first tranche of the $13.4 million law and order package recently announced for Moree.

Mr Marshall says he is proud to support the Bail and Crimes Amendment Bill 2024,using his contribution during the debate to urge his parliamentary colleagues to leave ‘partisan politics’ at the door when approaching the issue of spiralling youth crime.

Mr Marshall says the government moved swiftly to draft and introduce the legislation, which was comprehensive and nuanced, listening directly to community feedback, with Mr Marshall personally sitting down and speaking with victims of crime, perpetrators of crime, parents of perpetrators of crime, and those who feel like prisoners in their own homes and has no doubt they will be pleased with the government’s response.

Mr Marshall says the bill passed the Legislative Assembly with amendments, and will be shortly debated in the Legislative Council.
