Police breach 'totally unacceptable'
Police Minister Rob Johnson spoke to Harvey Deegan about the 18-year-old who allegedly impersonated a police officer and entered police buildings a number of times. Mr Johnson described the incident as totally unacceptable.
Thank you Gerry. It was about what I expected, anyway.
I had a reason to complain and the "person" I had contact with had obviously made up their mind (such as it is) long before calling me and "investigating" (such as THAT was).
This person let slip some salient information to which he/she should not have been privy and made certain personal comments to one of my family which I consider way outside the issue at hand.Dellas Saturday 9 June, 2012 - 7:39 PM
Police investigate themselves - internal affairs. Serious complaints are referred to the CCC, however Parliamentary Inspector Chris Steytler earlier in the year noted that there were 381 complaints waiting up to two years at the CCC.
Also, the imputation of people having worked in senior roles in either the police or the CCC and then moving to the other I believe is a problem - we need demarcation and I've long argued for independent Police Inspectorates, people who have nothing to do with the police in terms of a recent work history or in reporting to them.
I think this would be welcomed by police officers who are probably exhausted by the aspersions cast from what appear a litany of serious predicaments which go without the likewise scrutiny and prosecutions that the rest of citizenry go through.
I may come from the perspective of a Deaths in Custody researcher however I believe it's in everyones best interests to expect the governance and scrutiny that is rule for the majority as a rule for everyone.Gerry Georgatos Thursday 7 June, 2012 - 10:31 AM
Who investigates Police Complaints? Who Investigates the CCC?
Who investigates complaints about Hospitals?
And from what (the little and all) I've learned is that every time they open their mouths, their feet are in it.Dellas Wednesday 6 June, 2012 - 9:31 PM
