Given the recent spate of offences involving knives, the NSW Government has passed a law replicating laws in Queensland, known as Jack's Law. Jack's Law was introduced in Queensland in 2022 and is named after 17 year‑old Jack Beasley, who was stabbed to death in Surfers Paradise in 2019. The new police powers will permit police, with the proper authority, to stop and scan persons using a handheld metal scanner in designated areas without a warrant.
