Letter: ACT Policing Introduction of Online Reporting

Publication date: 
January 2022

ACTCOSS wrote to ACT Policing and Minister for Police and Emergency Services expressing concern about the recent move to digital reporting for some types of property crime. There are many for whom digital reporting is inaccessible and exclusionary. Those who are most likely to be disadvantaged are amongst ACT’s most vulnerable, including older Canberrans and people with disabilities. ACTCOSS encourages greater community consultation in the implementation of this change, as well as future decision making.
