Legislative Reviews

In February 2019, the Commission was tasked with reviewing the implementation of the amendments to the consorting law under Part 3A Division 7 of the Crimes Act 1900 over a three year period. The Commission has published a discussion paper, and anticipates it will publish a final report in 2022.

Full Details

The Commission has an ongoing function under Parts 2A and 3 of the Terrorism (Police Powers) Act 2002, to keep under scrutiny the exercise of the preventative detention powers and covert search powers conferred on members of the NSWPF (and the preventative detention powers conferred on correctional officers). This legislative review assesses compliance with legal requirements and the policies and procedures in place to use the powers correctly.

Full Details

The Commission is required to keep under scrutiny the exercise of powers conferred on police under Part 6A, of the Law Enforcement (Powers and Responsibilities) Act 2002.

Part 6A allows police to authorise the use of special powers to prevent or control largescale public disorder. The special powers were created as a response to the Cronulla riots in 2005. The reports are contained within the Commission’s Annual Reports.

Acknowledgement of Country

The Law Enforcement Conduct Commission acknowledges and pays respect to the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we work, and recognises their continuing connection to the lands and waters of NSW. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures, and the Elders past and present.
