NSW says ‘No’ to decriminalising drugs but pivots towards a health-based response

After waiting almost three years to respond to the recommendations of the NSW Ice Inquiry NSW Premier, Dominic Perrottet, has rejected the recommendation to decriminalise use of illicit drugs. 

A police officer will face court tomorrow after being charged by Professional Standards Command (PSC) investigators over the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl.

In September, officers from the PSC Investigations Unit established Strike Force Yalu to investigate reports of misconduct of an officer attached to Northern Region.

Following extensive inquiries, the 29-year-old male senior constable was arrested about 8.30am today (Tuesday, 8 December) and taken to Lismore Police Station.

He was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual intercourse child aged between 14 and 16.

The officer, who is currently suspended without pay, has been refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court tomorrow (Wednesday, 9 December 2020).

Inquiries are continuing.

  1. This is not good for the Police. Temptation must have been great to hush it up. What a terrible prospect : doing time as an ex-copper and also a rock spider.
