185 Department of Justice Alcohol Reform Program The Alcohol Reform Program targets problem drinkers who cause alcohol-related crime and anti-social behaviour in our community. The reforms introduce and enforce Territory-wide problem drinker bans and mandatory treatment through the establishment of a BannedDrinker Register and ID scanner system, an Alcohol and Other Drugs Tribunal for non-criminal matters and a SMART Court for criminal-related matters. Key Deliverables1 2011-12 Budget 2011-12 Estimate 2012-13 Budget Number of alcohol bans issued2 2 300 12 000 12 000 Treatment orders completed3 150 150 150 Number of attempts to purchase alcohol denied4 5 000 15 000 15 000 Number of applications received by the Alcohol and Other Drugs Tribunal5 600 600 600 Number of referrals received by the SMART Court 375 375 375 1 Measures relate to new legislation introduced in 2011, with the Alcohol Reform Program commencing on 1 July 2011. Estimates have been revised based on the first six months of data. 2 Includes alcohol bans issued through police Banning and Alcohol Treatment (BAT) Notices and orders made by the Alcohol and Other Drugs Tribunal and the court system. Increase in 2011-12 relates to higher than expected police issued BAT Notices. 3 Orders made by the Alcohol and Other Drugs Tribunal and SMART Court. 4 Includes denials from the Banned Drinkers Register and from attempts to purchase alcohol in excess of permit conditions or without a valid permit for the region. Increase in 2011-12 is due to significant improvements in the effectiveness of the Banned Drinkers Register over previous systems, as well as the fact that no denial system had previously existed in Darwin and Palmerston. 5 Applications relate to people on BAT Notices, review of BAT Notices and referral of people with substance misuse problems, who place themselves and/or others at risk.
