Police Association pans report into misconduct of Protective Services Officers

The Police Association has panned a report into misconduct of Protective Services Officers as ‘unbalanced’.

The Anti-corruption Commission has released a report documenting 77 examples of predatory behaviour by PSOs, increasing between 2012 and 2015.

But the Police Association has dismissed the report as ‘totally flawed’.

Secretary Ron Iddles told Tony Jones it only documents complaints made against PSOs with no mention of how those investigations panned out.

‘This is an exploration looking at allegations,’ Mr Iddles said.

‘I know that most of those complaints haven’t been substantiated.

‘If you’re going to put a report out like this, put a balanced report out.’
