Public housing safety strategy
This strategy is aimed at addressing antisocial behaviour in and around public housing using a range of preventative measures.
Public housing safety officers
Public housing safety officers work with tenants, neighbours and visitors to investigate, respond to and reduce antisocial behaviour in Alice Springs and Darwin public housing.
Red card policy
The red card policy scores the type and seriousness of antisocial behaviour in terms of demerit points. Tenants that are regular offenders will have demerit points issued to them and if they reach six demerit points may be evicted.
Visitor management policy
This policy gives tenants the support they need to manage their visitors and maintain their private space.
Acceptable behaviour agreements
This is a written agreement that the tenant has with the department not to engage in antisocial behaviour in or near the property.
Housing and Police working together
The department and the NT Police have an agreement to work closely together in regard to antisocial behaviour in and around public housing properties.
