Sharing our vision

It was an honour to share our vision at the STOP Domestic Violence Conference in Hobart on Wednesday alongside the wonderful Estelle F. and Beck O’Connor.

Together, Queensland Police Service, DVConnect, Domestic Violence Action Centre, Microsoft and Griffith University are collaborating to contribute to improve data sharing between agencies and advance a whole-of-society solution to end gender-based violence.

Coroner's reports, the QLD Death Review Advisory Board reports and numerous enquiries point to improved collaboration and information sharing as key to reducing the risk of domestic violence homicide.

In early discussions in collaboration between agencies, a gap was identified of members’ inability to identify which (if any) agencies held relevant DV information regarding an individual that could support enhanced investigation, risk assessment and response activities.

The project aims to bridge the data capability gap in the DV space by automating information sharing across disparate government and non-government systems to:
- provide a more holistic view of incidents cases to assist in accurately identifying person most in need of protection;
- enable government departments and DFV service providers to make more informed decisions to protect victim-survivors; and
- enhance our understanding and specialist capability in identifying perpetrators and ensuring they are held to account.

Thank you to all of our project partners.
