PROTECTIVE OFFICERS: Community Legal centres say Protective Services Officers are bored, poorly trained and are unfairly targeting the mentally ill. In one case, PSOs have fined a teenager with an intellectual disability 13 times in two months.
EASTERN SUBURBS: Detectives are investigating whether a serial sex pest targeting women in Melbourne's eastern suburbs has struck a ninth time. A 27-year-old woman has contacted police claiming she was indecently assaulted by a man in Camberwell.
