The Saturday Paper

National approach


Thank you for your editorial “Brute force” (September 17-23). By the time I reached the conclusion, I felt my own deep sadness and despair on this front had been given voice.

We need a (recurring) policing summit to bring all parties together to confront the institutio­nal racism and sexism that underpins so much violence against First Peoples and the inept response to domestic violence and mental illness. We need a national approach to education, training and support for our police and better funding to ensure its ongoing implementa­tion and efficacy. Without a focused and committed national approach, cultural change will never happen.
