VIOLENCE RESTRAINING ORDERS — BEHAVIOUR CHANGE PROGRAMS

1973. Hon Alison Xamon to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:

I refer to changes made to restraining orders legislation with the passage of the Restraining Orders and Related Legislation Amendment (Family Violence) Act 2016, and I ask:

(a) how many behaviour change orders have been made by Western Australian courts;

(b) how many behaviour change orders have resulted in an offender successfully completing a behaviour change program;

KAREN MERRIN — TRIBUTE

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [10.00 pm]: I rise to reflect on the life of Karen Merrin, who passed away yesterday morning after a long battle with cancer. Karen would be well known to many members of this place. She has left a significant legacy in this state, specifically in the community legal sector. I want to acknowledge so much of what Karen has done and her achievements. This information about Karen’s work in the sector is from the Community Legal Centres Association of Western Australia, which has written a very good obituary for Karen.
