Hard News: The Police Ten 7 State,
I’ve been doing research over the last four years for a community project on gangs – Jarrod and Greg Newbold helped us with a Literature Review early on. I’ve been working closely with Police and local gangs but haven’t been denied any information requested and have had access to a wide range of ‘intelligence’. We’ve steered away from criticising Ministers other than questioning the value and motives for launching a ‘Whole of Government Action Plan on Gangs’ in the middle of the 2014 election when the officials had no idea about it. We know it’s a hugely politicised issue, so preferring to focus on what we can do without the politicians as much as possible.
