The NSW election in March brought with it a commitment from the Government to review police oversight. The emphasis of the review by former shadow Attorney-General Andrew Tink is to improve police accountability by streamlining the current system of police oversight.

UNSW Law and Redfern Legal Centre will be hosting a forum on 30 July 2015 on the current system of police oversight and the Tink review. 

This forum will debate the systemic problems with the current structure of police oversight and consider solutions from diverse perspectives, exploring these key topics: 

  • Should police continue to investigate themselves?
  • Is independent investigation of the police on the horizon? 
  • What powers should a potential single civilian oversight body have? 

Please join us for a public forum exploring these issues.
