Domestic Violence Victoria policy manager Alison Macdonald said coronial investigations enable the community and the authorities working for it to learn from such cases.

“The Coroners Court can make recommendations to Ministers or statutory authorities where systemic issues are identified and where improvements to services can be made to prevent the same situations occurring in the future.”
