Independent review of the effectiveness of ACT Policing crime scene powers and powers to target, disrupt, investigate and prosecute criminal gang members

In September 2019, the Justice and Community Safety Directorate engaged Associate Professor Terry Goldsworthy to undertake an independent review of the effectiveness of ACT police powers to target, disrupt, investigate and prosecute criminal gang members. A key purpose of the review was to meet the statutory obligation for the Attorney-General to examine the operation of the crime scene powers in Division 10.4A of the Crimes Act 1900 as soon as practicable after the end of the first year of operation of that division.

On 6 December 2019, Dr Goldsworthy finalised a report on the findings and recommendations of the review. On 20 February 2020, the Attorney-General tabled the final report in the Legislative Assembly.
