Jack’s Law Passed By State Parliament 

As part of the Palaszczuk Government’s commitment to deliver better services and keep Queenslander safe, the Queensland Police service trial of “wanding powers” will now be extended for two years and expanded to all Safe Night Out Precincts, public transport modes and associated public transport infrastructure.

The new law is named in honour of victim Jack Beasley and the efforts of his parents, Brett and Belinda, to support community safety. Jack Beasley died after being stabbed once in the chest in December 2019 at Surfers Paradise on a night out. 

Wanding powers will be expanded to include transport hubs and infrastructure. 

Wanding will be extended to Safe Night Out Precincts in: Airlie Beach, Brisbane, Broadbeach, Bundaberg, Cairns. Fortitude Valley, Gladstone, Inner West Brisbane, Ipswich, Mackay, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and Townsville.
