(1) How are arbitrary targets for police person searches and move on orders set and by whom?
(2) How are these targets used as performance management tools?
(3) What penalties apply if targets are not met?
(4) Do these targets require officers to use these strategies without discretion?
(5) Do the targets include demographic criteria such as gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality?
(6) Do the targets focus this action on specific geographic precincts within commands?
(7) What other criteria apply within the targets?
(8) How are these targets linked to crime reports and intelligence?
(9) What plans does the Government have to review this policy?
I am advised:
(1) The NSW Police Force does not set arbitrary targets or indicators.
(2) Community safety indicators are used by the executive of the NSW Police Force to monitor the performance of Police Area Commands (PAC) and Police Districts (PD).
(4) - (6)
(8) The utilisation of police powers are regularly informed by local knowledge, information or intelligence in each PAC or PD.
(9) Community safety indicators are not a Government policy. They are a performance review tool of the executive of the NSW Police Force.
