Almost a third of all call outs for Kingaroy Police are for domestic and family violence related incidents.
On average, South Burnett local police are called out to two suspected domestic violence incidents every night in the region with Kingaroy's Senior Sergeant David Tierney telling the South Burnett Times that the issue makes up a large portion of the stations workload, with up to a third of all work done by local officers responding to the offence.
He says that is time to spread awareness on the issue during Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month.
