Submission on the Victorian Law Reform Commission’s Consultation Paper on Stalking – August 2021

The Victoria Law Reform Commission (‘the Commission’) was asked by Victoria’s Attorney-General to review Victoria’s responses to stalking, harassment and other similar behaviours. This includes how the Victorian Personal Safety Intervention Order (PSIO) system works. As part of this, the Commission ran a consultation process, which Djirra was invited to participate in. While Djirra is a specialist family violence service, we are able to provide insight into stalking as it relates to violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
