Police Auctions News
Thursday January 8, 2009NSW politics has differentiated itself from other Australian political arenas on many fronts but perhaps none so remorselessly predictable as the law and order auction. For the past 20 years, come election time, our politicians have fallen over themselves promising to spend millions on more police, more weapons, more jails, longer sentences - anything, in fact, that assuages voters' fears about law and order being out of control.

Saturday July 28, 2001The persistent claims by the State Government and the Police Service that crime was under control in Cabramatta can no longer be sustained. An Upper House standing committee's conclusion that the response to drug-related crime has been mishandled is compelling.
