Police bin unjust surveillance amid ‘bombshell’ report

A “bombshell” audit has found an intensive police program that overwhelmingly targeted young Indigenous youth and led to repeated midnight check-ups was unreasonable, unjust and oppressive.

‘This is a bombshell report,’ Public Interest Advocacy Centre chief executive Jonathon Hunyor said.

‘Police have been exposed for acting unlawfully in their harassment of young people under the (program).’

In the face of the watchdog proposing a finding of agency maladministration, NSW Police ended the program with juveniles.
