ACT Health—dermatology unit
Ms Stephen-Smith (in reply to a question by Ms Castley on Thursday, 13 October 2022):
Waiting times are dynamic and the mean waiting time for the patients on the waiting list at 21 April 2022 for an initial appointment in the dermatology service was 740 days.
ACT Policing—Operation TORIC
Mr Gentleman (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Hanson on Thursday, 13 October 2022):
As at 30 October 2022, there were 73 arrests attached to Operation TORIC that were released on bail.
ACT Policing Intelligence provide a list of offenders who are of interest and who have compliance conditions to patrol zones for routine compliance checking.
ACT Policing—response times
Mr Gentleman (in reply to a question by Mr Hanson on Tuesday, 18 October 2022):
All reports made to ACT Policing are prioritised in accordance with dispatch protocols, meaning those where people are in danger are prioritised higher with a faster response time.
In accordance with the 2021-22 Purchase Agreement and the prioritised response model, ACT Policing utilises a three-tier incident response prioritisation framework:
• Priority One incidents are defined as life threatening or time critical situations;
• Priority Two incidents are defined as situations where the information provided indicates that time is important, but not critical; and
• Priority Three incidents are defined as incidents where there is no immediate danger to safety or property.
Though ACT Policing did not meet its Priority One or Priority Two targets as documented in the 2021-22 Annual Report, the failure to meet Performance Measures eight and nine is symptomatic of increased calls for service and additional pressure on police to respond within target timeframes.
Priority Two matters have increased 30 per cent in the last seven years, demonstrating this increased demand on ACT Policing.
