ACT’s Law and Order policy

ACT have released their draft law and order policy. Safe to assume that unlike Labour, funding the Mongrel Mob is not part of their policy. Their key points are:

  1. Introduce Gang Injunction Orders based on the UK ones introduce in 2009
  2. Ban gang members on welfare benefits from spending the benefit money on alcohol, gambling or tobacco
  3. Automatically increase Police numbers annually to maintain ratio of 1 officer per 500 population.
  4. Abolish the target to reduce the prison population by 30% as the role of Corrections is not to reduce the number of people in prison, but keep the community safe
  5. Make rehabilitation programmes compulsory for prisoners to gain parole
