Family violence specialist agencies have been invited to submit an expression of interest to trial how technology such as CCTV and personal safety cards can be employed to improve the safety of women and children who experience family violence.
Four pilots will be funded to test what works before considering a broader rollout. Women who participate in the pilot will also receive case management support to ensure that the use of technology is part of a broader plan for safety and wellbeing.
More information is available in the State Government press release.
