Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 – A guide for service providers
The Queensland Centre for Domestic Violence and Family Research (CDFVR) have produced a mobile app “Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 – A guide for service providers” which is now available for download here. The app, launched on Friday 23rd November by Queensland’s Chief Magistrate, His Honour Judge Brendan Butler AM SC was produced by CDFVR in partnership with the Queensland Government and a community based reference group.
Comments from those who trialled the app include:
“I found the app to be very handy; I was able to get the answers I needed without having to call back into the office. As this is a new Act having the app to double check on information was invaluable time saving. I was able to check or search information efficiently, which was beneficial for my client. My overall experience using this app was positive and enjoyable.”
“I am very impressed with the ease of use and the ability to access information quickly and then expand on that information via the use of hyperlinks … it’s a wonderful tool that would also be a handy asset for general duties police to clarify legislation whilst at incidents where they do not have access to computers but always have their phones.”
