Safer Communities: 21 More Police Auxiliary Liquor Inspectors Graduate

The Territory Labor Government is tackling alcohol-fuelled crime and anti-social behaviour through the most significant alcohol reforms in our history.

Today, 21 Police Auxiliary Liquor Inspectors graduated from their 13-week training program. They are the second group of PALI’s to graduate.

Their training has covered many aspects including legislation, police powers and judicial process – as well as domestic and family violence awareness, child welfare awareness and policing between cultures.

The 21 new PALI’s will commence duties at the start of January with 10 inspectors going to Katherine, 2 to Tennant Creek and 9 to Alice Springs.

The total number of PALIs in Alice Springs is 26.

Once recruitment is complete, there will be 75 PALI’s with 41 in Alice, 22 in Katherine and 12 in Tennant Creek.

They will form part of the 97-member strong unit within the NT Police aimed at reducing the alcohol-fuelled crime and violence on our streets.

The third squad of Police Auxiliary Liquor Inspectors will commence training at the start of February 2019.
