Community Forum Update: MCOT & Punjabi Society Tasmania recently convened a crucial discussion with representatives from Tas Police, Equal Opportunity Tasmania, MCOT, and MRC, in relation to the recent tragedy and ongoing racially motivated crimes.

Questions were posed about Tas Police’s response to racial attacks, focusing on immediate support for victims. Suggestions included collaborative outreach programs, hate crime reporting mechanisms, and increased police presence in vulnerable areas. Discussions also centered on preventive measures such as community education on tolerance.

Tas Police re-assured the community about the investigation process, victim support, and efforts to apprehend perpetrators.

EOT also reminded community to ensure they report any incidents through the “report it” page on the EOT website to ensure we can capture data to inform future strategies.

Remember, in emergencies, dial 000. Let’s work together for a safer, more inclusive community! #EndRacism
