JULALIKARI’S new Youth Patrol

Program Supervisor, Kieran
Hicks is working on training new
“ They are learning how to
communicate with children and
young people, the rules around
the patrol service, caring for
passengers and taking down
accurate statistics,” Kieran said.
The new Patrol Service is
patrolling between the hours
of 5pm and 1.30am during
this initial week as training
The hours will change according
to need over the next couple of
weeks and will operate 7 days a
week up until the 30th June.
The children and young people
are checking out the service.
“ The kids were curious about
the new Youth Patrol service
and want to hop on the bus to
see what it was all about,” said
Thirty children each night have
been on the bus.

A DOCTOR who recommended
banning alcohol in Tennant Creek
for five years was applauded at
a public meeting last Thursday
Dr Roel Condron said he was sick of
treating an endless stream of drunk, preg-
nant women, children with foetal alcohol
syndrome disorder, people injured in
alcohol-fuelled assaults and young adults
who had attempted suicide while drunk.
He urged to community to stand together
and say ‘enough is enough’.
“My suggestion would be a moratorium
on alcohol in Tennant Creek,” he said.
“I would say five years of alcohol pro-
hibition ... if you want to drink [then go]
outside of our town.”
The forum, hosted by the Barkly Re-
gional Council was called in response
to community crisis talks sparked by a
spate of alcohol-fuelled violence that
culminated in the alleged rape of a two-
year-old local girl.
A panel, including Tennant Creek Po-
lice Station OIC, Senior Sergeant Don
Eaton, Mayor Steve Edgington, Martin
Plumb from the Department of the Chief
Minister and Councillors Sid Vashist,
Jeff McLaughlin, Ronald Plummer and
Kris Civitarese fielded questions from the
crowd of around 200 residents.
Mr Edgington said the forum was called
by councillors at the February meeting
in response to rising crime rates such as
increases in domestic violence, alcohol-
fuelled assaults, vandalism and break-ins.
“We wanted to give residents an oppor-
tunity to share their concerns,” he said.
“People were shocked and upset by the
alleged rape of the two-year-old girl and
the assault that lead to the death of a man
but there had been community unrest for
at least six to 12 months beforehand, in-
cluding a spate of suicides last October.”
Mr Edgington said those present at the
meeting showed a very strong interest
and commitment to identifying issues
of concern and were determined to work
together to find solutions.
The meeting was boycotted by the newly
formed group of traditional owners.
A spokesperson for the group said they
were sick of people talking about the
town’s problems and tired of reading
about them in the national media.
“We are feeling like it is disrespectful
and besides, there was some pretty raw
stuff happening for us at the time,” he said.
“Of all the politicians and bureaucrats
who had visited Tennant only Northern
Territory Liquor Commission chair,
Richard Coates, had bothered to meet
with our group.”
