However, information entered into Integrated Justice Information System originates in the Police Real-time On-line Management Information System (PROMIS) which adheres to the definition prescribed in the Northern Territory’s Domestic and Family Violence Act (2009).

Aspects of FDV captured in the data are:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Psychological / Emotional abuse
  • Economic abuse
  • Social abuse
  • Property damage
  • Harassment and Stalking

Collection methodology

Data are entered into Integrated Justice Information System by police officers or court clerks. Clerks are trained to follow procedures for consistent and accurate recording. The checking process is a stringent one with well documented procedures.

The ‘principal penalty’ rule is used in Integrated Justice Information System. Where an individual is before the court for several offences, the penalty against which his/her case is recorded is the more serious one, for example, armed robbery and breach of DVO would reflect the penalty for armed robbery.

Scope / target population

All persons who have a Domestic Violence Order given to them by the Northern Territory courts.

Coverage

Where an individual is before the court for several offences, only the more serious penalty is recorded. As no Domestic Violence flag is attached to a court case and individuals with a more serious concurrent offence will not be counted as a Domestic Violence offence in Integrated Justice Information System data.
