NSW Police can disclose a history of domestic violence as part of the Right to Ask process

Police Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister Paul Toole said the dating landscape had “changed significantly” since the last trial, with more people accessing dating apps and dating outside of their circle of friends.

The recent alleged murder of a woman in western Sydney, involving charges brought against a man she recently met through dating app Bumble, sparked an outcry in the community over dating apps allowing would-be abusers , making it easier to get at unsuspecting victims.

This week, Secretary of State for Communications Michelle Rowland will chair a roundtable in Sydney bringing together state and territory governments, domestic violence researchers and industry advocacy groups to examine ways in which Australians can use online dating services can be better protected.

In a statement, Rowland said a key focus of the discussion will be “to examine what industry members are doing to prevent exploitation of their services by criminals, to identify what else could be done to improve user security, and to consider what further action is needed from government and industry to improve safety in online dating”.

NSW Minister for Women’s Safety and the Prevention of Domestic and Sexual Violence Natalie Ward said there was no one-size-fits-all solution to tackling domestic violence.

The government will meet with domestic violence organizations on Monday to discuss the implementation of the Right To Ask scheme, which will be subject to a review after 12 months.
