Mingga Patrol

 

Overview

The Mingga Patrol aims to ensure the safety and security of intoxicated people in the Roebourne region of Western Australia (WA), who may be at risk of harm, by transporting them to a safe place. Children and young people who may also be at risk are also offered transport.

The service, run by Yaandina Family Centre, aims to reduce contact between people and the criminal justice system by addressing issues of antisocial behaviour and alcohol and other drug use. The service also aims to develop strong collaborative relationships with the local medical services, police and other community services.

In addition to the patrol, Yaandina Family Centre also offers a Shelter, which provides a safe haven for community members over the age of 18 who are intoxicated and are at risk of harm, or engaging in antisocial behaviour.
