(3)        supports efforts at the upcoming COAG meeting to engage all levels of government and the broader community on this shared national endeavour;

(4)        places on record its deep concern about the use of new technology and in particular smart phone tracking applications by family violence perpetrators to obtain and monitor the location of their victims; and
