The Review of Police Criminal Investigative Powers Discussion Paper considers a broad range of police powers and advocates the modernisation and consolidation of those powers into a single piece of legislation.
“The aim of these proposals is to provide the courts, legal practitioners and the community with a single source of legislation for all police criminal investigative powers.
The discussion paper deals with police powers like arrest procedures, search provisions, protections and safeguards for those in custody and how police treat those in custody.”
