Domestic and Family Violence is everyone’s business

White Ribbon Day 2019, on Friday November 22, is an opportunity for all of us to say “no” to violence against women and children and to focus on fostering respect, healthy relationships, and a safer environment for women and children.

Violence against women is at epidemic proportions in Australia. On average, one woman each week is murdered by her current or former partner.

This year, to mark White Ribbon Day, New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch will partner with Lifeline on Saturday 23rd November to bring you a workshop on domestic and family violence. This workshop is supported by Derwent Valley Councillor, Julie Triffett and Jen Butler, MP.

Carol Cashion, a Lifeline trainer, will lead this two-hour interactive workshop from 9.30 -11.30am in the Lions Club Rooms at 17-19 Humphrey Street, New Norfolk. The workshop is free to anyone who would like to attend and morning tea is provided.

Come along and learn how to identify forms of abuse, recognise the signs of` domestic and family abuse, and discuss what you can do to make a difference.

If you are interested, please register online via the Lifeline or New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch webpages or phone Lifeline on 6282 1553. Or if you want to drop in on Saturday morning – just come along.

Over a dozen people have been arrested - including a senior member of the Outlaws motorcycle gang - following a major police operation in Northern Tasmania targeting drug trafficking.

The extensive investigation, codenamed Operation Alert, commenced earlier this year and has targeted the organised trafficking of illicit drugs including crystal methyl amphetamine (ICE) into Tasmania.

Charges include multiple instances of trafficking in ICE, MDMA (ecstasy), amphetamine (speed) and cannabis plus possession of firearms, possession of stolen property, perverting justice and other minor charges.

The illicit drugs seized by police during Operation Alert have a potential street value of approximately $350,000.
