Police conduct in CCTV footage 'distressing': LIV

Police conduct in CCTV footage 'distressing': LIV

0 Comments


Law Institute of Victoria president Belinda Wilson said the police behaviour shown in recent CCTV footage was “distressing and disturbing”.

Ms Wilson called for greater transparency around how police are being held accountable for their misconduct.

“Victorians deserve a better police complaints management system than what we currently have. It is concerning that the majority of police complaints received by the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission (IBAC) are currently referred back to the police to investigate.

“We need a complaints system that meets Australia's human rights obligations.

“The Victorian government needs to take a leadership position and establish a complaints system that is independent, transparent, and holds police accountable for their misconduct.

“We need to take action now to make it clear that any potential police misconduct is unacceptable. We need a complaints system that is victim-centred and ensures public confidence in our police force.

“We urge the Government to work collaboratively with the LIV to ensure that Victoria's policies on police accountability reflect a commitment to fairness, equality and the rule of law,” Ms Wilson said.
