The Night Patrol aims to improve community safety and reduce community consequences of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) by assisting Aboriginal people in public places who are AOD affected or otherwise ‘at-risk’ of harm to:
- Improve their personal safety and wellbeing ; and
- Minimise the:
- Level of harm from ‘at-risk’ behaviours
- Level of contact with police and criminal justice system
- Resource impacts (financial and manpower) on government and community service
The Jungarni-Jutiya Night Patrol Service provides an invaluable service to the Halls Creek Community by assisting those who are intoxicated, hurt, in violent situations, out on the street and generally at-risk, taking them to a safer place. Through this the patrol reduces the impacts on the Police, Hospital Services and other community services in an area that they do not need to necessarily be involved in.
The Night Patrol are out on the street from 4pm until 11.30pm from Tuesday to Saturday, assisting people at risk.
