Saturday 19-Jan-2019 13:02

Three officers of the Northern Territory Police Force were allegedly assaulted overnight while responding to a call for assistance.

It is alleged that while the officers were escorting a 19-year-old female to a police vehicle, the female kicked a male officer to the groin and later kicked a female officer at the Tennant Creek Watch House.

The alleged offender had also thrown glass at the officers prior to being placed in the vehicle, with the glass shattering over the officers’ legs.

Superintendent of Tennant Creek Police Tanya Mace said that it is never acceptable to assault a member of the police.

“These men and women are responsible for ensuring the safety of our fellow community members and it is deplorable when they are physically and verbally assaulted in their attempts to keep others safe.

“Luckily these two officers did not require medical treatment, but that does not lessen the nature of the offence.

“We want our officers to return home to their loved ones, as any member of the public is entitled to do.”

The female was charged with three counts of assault police and one count of disorderly behaviour in a police station. She has been bailed to appear before the Tennant Creek Local Court in February.

MIL-OSI Australia: Love is in the air across Queensland

Source: Government of Queensland

More than 1300 same-sex couples have wed in Queensland since same-sex marriage ceremonies could legally be held just over one year ago on January 9, 2018.
Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said while same-sex marriage had been legal in Australia since December 9, 2017, couples had a 30-day waiting period before ceremonies could be held, unless they were granted an exemption.
“Since marriage changed to be more inclusive, 1330 same-sex marriages have been registered in Queensland one year on from January 9, 2018,” Mrs D’Ath said.
“Marriage celebrants from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages wed 199 couples, while other celebrants conducted 1074 ceremonies. On top of this, 47 couples were married at courthouses and 10 had church weddings.
“Registry data shows that the majority of same-sex marriages have occurred in larger population areas such as Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay regions, but there have been weddings across the state since the laws came into effect.
“Celebrants have 30 days to register a marriage after the event so there will be even more couples who have married over the past 12 months, but their registration application form is yet to be received by the registry.”
Queensland held Australia’s first same-sex marriage on December 15, 2017 as the couple was given an exemption from the waiting period due to their personal circumstances. Three other couples also received exemption from the waiting period.
