I am the defendant named in the Final AVO made on 10 February 20XX for a period of 6 months. The AVO will expire on 10 August 20XX.
Prior to the making of the application for an AVO, I had held a licence under the Firearms Act and held a Class 1F licence issued under the Security Act. The Class 1F licence allowed me to be armed while performing security services, so long as I held a licence under the Firearms Act. At that time I worked as an armed security guard.
At the hearing of the application for an AVO, I consented to the AVO and I was told that my firearms licence was revoked. As a result, I lost my job. I still have my security licence but I can’t take any job that requires me to carry a firearm.
On 4 March 20XX, I enrolled in an anger management course. The course was run over three months and required me to attend one on one counselling sessions with a trained psychologist once a week, as well as twice weekly group therapy sessions involving other men and women who had similar anger problems as mine, conducted by a trained psychiatrist.
I completed the anger management course and I am confident that I am now better equipped to deal with my anger issues. I have also moved to Tweed Heads and I no longer see, or have any contact with, the protected person/s.
I wish to resume my career in the security industry and I would like to be able to apply for a firearms licence again.
