' 125 (7)% \_Protective Custody 915 (54%) Figure 2: BAT Notice Reason at end of March 2012 At the end of March 2012 , of the 1,680 people on the BDR for BAT Notices, 637 (38%) people were on the BDR for a BAT Notice due to an apprehension for an offence, and 915 (54%) were as a result of protective custody incidents (Figure 2) . To build on the success of this Australia-first initiative which tackles problem drinking and its devastating impacts on the community, the Territory Government introduced the Liquor and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2012 to Parliament in March 2012. This amended legislation will refine and strengthen the Enough is Enough Alcohol Reform package. The legislation provides police with more tools to target anti-social behaviour around licensed premises and entertainment precincts while also strengthening the powers of the Alcohol and Other Drugs Tribunal . The Liquor and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2012 amends three existing Acts: the Summary Offences Act the Liquor Act the Alcohol Reform (Prevention of Alcohol-related Crime and Substance Misuse) Act ,~
