Storm CEO Dave Donaghy on Crime Prevention Taskforce

Melbourne Storm CEO Dave Donaghy is among a number of sporting and business leaders helping to address crime prevention in Victoria.

Minister for Crime Prevention, Ben Carroll, today launched a Crime Prevention Taskforce, which will support the State Government to create innovative programs that address key factors of offending.

Donaghy and 13 other senior leaders from organisations including the Australian Football League, Channel 7, Woolworths, National Australia Bank and the Victorian Council of Social Services will meet regularly over the next year to identify new ways to break the cycle of reoffending.

The Taskforce will be chaired by Minister Carroll and will work closely with the community to develop these new programs, which will include job placements, mentoring support & educational assistance for at risk Victorians - giving them a second chance.
