Major NSW Parties Vote Down Law Against Sexual Predators in the Police Force

The major parties of the NSW parliament have voted down a law which would have sought to ensure that “sexual misconduct [by police officers] reduces… [their] promotional opportunities”

The Greens amendment would have added provisions to section 71 of the Police Act 1990 (NSW), ensuring the commissioner must not promote an officer who’s engaged in prior sexual harassment or misconduct, and that an inquiry to ascertain if this is the case be conducted before promotion.
