LNP launches Making Queensland Safer Laws

25th March 2024


The LNP has boldly announced the next steps it will take to tackle Queensland’s out-of-control Queensland Youth Crime Crisis.

LNP Leader David Crisafulli will today announce the Making Queensland Safer Laws would be rolled-out as the first legislative priority of an LNP Government, if elected in October.

An amendment to the Youth Justice Act to remove Detention as a Last Resort would be the first of several changes, forming the foundation of the Making Queensland Safer Laws which would be rolled-out before year-end.

The LNP has also launched a major television and digital campaign outlining the LNP’s plans to make our community safer.

The ad follows David Crisafulli to his family farm in North Queensland and across the State, meeting with Queenslanders and vowing to fix Labor’s crime mess to keep Queenslanders safe.

LNP Leader David Crisafulli said the Making Queensland Safer Laws were the strong crime laws Queenslanders had been demanding, and deserved.

“My commitment to Queenslanders is to roll-out our Making Queensland Safer Laws before the end of the year, to arrest the Youth Crime Crisis,” Mr Crisafulli said.

“Removing Detention as a Last Resort will be the first action of an LNP Government.

“For more than three years the LNP has been travelling the State, listening to Queenslanders about their priorities.

“The Making Queensland Safer Laws are a priority for Queenslanders.

 “Queenslanders want to feel safe in their homes and their businesses, they want an end to the cycle of crime that is terrorising their community.

“The reason we’re in this mess is fewer police and weak laws, because Labor doesn’t take crime seriously.

“After nearly a decade, it’s clear Labor has the wrong priorities and they’re out of ideas to fix the Youth Crime Crisis they created.

“The rights of crime victims must be put front and centre, and we must have consequences for actions by re-writing the Youth Justice Act.

“Only the LNP has the right priorities for Queensland’s future, including making our community safer.”
