Firstly, a big thank you to the Dover Gardens community and a number of residents who raised their concerns about anti-social behaviour at our first Community Forum in December last year.

Speech: Chief Superintendent Joanne Shanahan and Tania McNeill

The Hon. C.L. WINGARD (Gibson—Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Correctional Services, Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing) (14:07): I rise to join the statement of condolence at the passing of Detective Chief Superintendent Jo Shanahan and Tania McNeill.

Tragically, this ANZAC Day just past, Joanne's life was suddenly taken in a horrific crash at the intersection of Cross and Fullarton roads. Another woman, Tania McNeill, a mother aged 53, was also a victim of this accident and leaves behind grieving loved ones, including her husband, Cary, son, Bailey, parents and a sister. Detective Chief Superintendent Jo Shanahan leaves behind her husband, Peter, a former detective and now SA Police General Counsel, and two children, Nicholas and Eleni.

The shock felt by all is immense. For those members of her family, her husband and children, her friends and many colleagues at SAPOL, the pain must be overwhelming. The life of a woman who served her community with distinction as a proud member of the South Australian police was taken all too soon. A wonderful woman, wife, mother, friend and colleague, tributes have been flowing and flowers now lie at the site of the awful accident.

One whole week of zero new COVID-19 cases

I'm so pleased to share with you that today is the seventh day of zero new COVID-19 cases in South Australia.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far by putting the health and wellbeing of our community first by staying home.

While it certainly hasn't been easy, it is clear that by staying apart, we're stopping the spread of COVID-19 and saving the lives of our loved ones who are in the at-risk category.
