ALSWA Submission to the Legislation Committee of the WA Legislative Council – January 2010

ALSWA provided this submission to urge the WA Government to withdraw the Bill, which proposed to give the Western Australian police powers to stop and search people in designated areas without reasonable suspicion. Failing its withdrawal, ALSWA submitted several recommendations aimed at attempting to safeguard the community from over-policing and breaches of fundamental human rights likely to occur as a result of the powers created by the Bill.
