POLICE POWERS

December 01, 2009

Peninsula CLC made a submission to the Scrutiny of Acts and Regulations Committee expressing concern at the introduction of the Summary Offences and Control of Weapons Acts Amendment Bill 2009 into the Victorian Parliament, which would give police power to ‘move on’ people and conduct random strip searches in designated areas. We understand that the Victorian Government intends to proceed with the legislation, notwithstanding its incompatibility with the Victorian Charter of Rights. PCLC recommended that the Bill not be passed in its current form, and that a consultative process be established to consider how to address violence concerns whilst at the same time protecting fundamental human rights.

For more information, or to request a copy of PCLC’s submission, please contact the Centre on (03) 9783 3600 or pclc@pclc.org.au.
