Swift, Certain and Fair Approaches to Sentencing Family Violence Offenders: Discussion Paper

May 2017

The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) welcomed the opportunity to make a submission on the Swift, Certain and Fair Approaches to Sentencing Family Violence Offenders: Discussion Paper (Discussion Paper). Part of the reason for the development of this Discussion Paper is due to a recommendation made by FARE to the Victorian Royal Commission on Family Violence in 2015.

This presented a comprehensive response to alcohol-related family violence, particularly focused on reducing the availability and promotion of alcohol across Victoria. FARE’s submission contained 17 recommendations, with the recommendation to pilot a project with ‘swift and certain’ responses for alcohol-related offences being one.
