Broome officer treatment of detainees criticised

Mr Davis said he was “very proud” of officers’ commitment to training as part of the new model, but defended how the policy had been handled by officers under his leadership.

“A small minority of officers feel that it’s something inappropriate or should be changed, but it’s a very smal청주출장마사지 청주안마l minority,” he said.

“There is another branch which is dealing with things in an exceptional way – that has a very strong culture at that branch.

“At all times I have been concerned, and now it is very obvious, that they are in a highly unusual situation.”

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told an inquiry at a hearing in October 2014, he had spoken with “some officers” about their experiences.

“At this stage the only advice I’ve got for the officers is that they don’t want to be in it and will not be in it and they’re not allowed to use force but they shouldn’t get arrested,” Mr Rowley said.

Assistant Commissioner Rowley denied reports, later published by the Guardian and Fairfax Media, saying officers were being urged to avoid using excessive force when they felt an imminent threat to life and their life was in danger.

Mr Davis said the policy was implemented in a pragmatic way and in line with the law.

“It’s the police which decide who goes in and who doesn’t, the police decide what they’re prepared to and that can only get better,” he said.

“But let me also say that we’ve been quite clear that we will ensure that강남출장마사지 officers aren’t going to use force if they are required to do so for a lawful purpose, if they’re being investigated.”
