The number of people breaching apprehended violence orders (AVOs) in the Dubbo Regional Council area increased by 103.7 per cent per year in the 24 months to March this year.
NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research data released on Thursday revealed the increase is the biggest in the state and more than 10 times the state average rise of 9.6 per cent.
Coupled with the revelation there was a 63.4 per cent rise in domestic violence related assaults in the Dubbo region, the numbers have prompted the NSW Opposition to question the effectiveness of the government's approach to dealing with the growing problem.
When asked about the numbers, state member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders said the statistics showed more people found it easier to report domestic violence offences to police.
"The spike in that figure is related to the fact that people feel more comfortable reporting incidents of domestic violence, and the good work police have been doing across the community helps reinforce that feeling of being able to report these crimes," he said.
"More people contacting Crime Stoppers and police, and more police on the front foot holding criminals to account, means more reports are annually recorded."
Mr Saunders said the Nationals and Liberal government he is apart of is delivering 1500 new police, which is "the biggest single increase for the NSW Police Force in more than 30 years as part of a record investment in keeping our community safe."
"This means more police doing the right jobs in the right places across our state - and the Dubbo electorate - to keep people safe," he said.
The NSW Opposition's domestic violence spokeswoman Jenny Aitchison said the numbers were "not just about people feeling more comfortable reporting".
She questioned whether policies, to help the government achieve its goal to reduce the number of repeat domestic violence offenders, were working effectively if the number of people breaching AVOs has increased across NSW.
"We need more counselling, temporary and permanent accommodation and perpetrator behaviour change services," she said.
The Women's Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Program should also be given more funding to support the growing number of assault victims through the court process, Ms Aitchison said.
