    Electronic Lodgement Process Project Update

    We are excited to announce that the Electronic Lodgement Process (ELP) Project has progressed rapidly this year and promises to revolutionise the way you do business with the Licensing & Regulation Division.

    For those who are reading about ELP for the first time, the project is a Victoria Police initiative that is funded from the 'Reducing Regulatory Burden' allocation.

    The ELP solution concept has been developed in broad consultation within Licensing and Regulation, across the broader Victoria Police organisation and with the input of many of our external stakeholders.

    The primary objectives of the ELP project are to:

    Reduce the high regulatory and administrative burden associated with the application process
    Improve an outdated delivery system that does not meet customer expectations
    Increase Victoria Police's responsiveness to implementing change.

    Ya know, it always amazes me how the civil service and police forces in the different states can have some widely-varying attitudes towards the voting public who they are sworn/required to serve, and that quote above illustrates beautifully this discrepancy in how the Victorian police view their licensed shooters compared to the coppers/FAR here in NSW. Down there in Vic it appears that the administration of the licencing and registration of shooters is viewed no differently from the administration of driver licencing, small business regulation or hunting in State Forests, in that that they are administering a service required by legislation and it is in their best interest to strive to achieve the highest levels of efficiency and customer service.

    Meanwhile up here north of the border the NSW Police (and their government backers), through their administration of the Firearms Registry and shooting range licensing and regulation, appear to be doing everything in their power to discourage firearm ownership and the shooting sports by closing down ranges (either overtly or by just slapping a sudden raft of new requirements on them that are physically impossible to comply with) and making the whole licencing and PTA/registration system as slow and convoluted as possible. Unlike the Victorian attitude of "how can we serve you better", in NSW its basically on of "we don't want civilians owning guns and view you all with unbridled suspicion and contempt so we will make the whole thing as complicated, inefficient and frustrating as possible in the hope that you will find it all too hard and just simply give up and if you don't like it then tough titties"; the process of obtaining and then keeping a handgun licence in this state (let alone acquiring a handgun itself) for example is a perfect study of this attitude.

    There is no way in gods earth that NSW FAR would ever do anything to speed up and or simplify the process for obtaining licences and PTAs because they see it in their interest to make the whole thing as slow and inefficient as possible in order to discourage us becoming licenced and then acquiring additional firearms.
