Petition Success: DAVTW calls for Senior Constable Neil Punchard to be dismissed from the police service

Last year Senior Constable, Neil Punchard, leaked the address of a domestic violence victim to her ex-partner. DAVTW has been leading the call for him to be sacked from the police service, after a judge downgraded his sentence. Our petition calling for his sacking has now reached 67,226 signatures and has garnered support from prominent women’s groups, including Destroy the Joint. We are proud to be a part of the public pressure, which lead Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll to announce that police would appeal the downgrade of Punchard’s sentence, which allowed him to avoid any jail time and a recorded conviction.
