Promising new police commissioner

We have a new police commissioner just appointed in New South Wales, and he's been saying what I've wanted top cops to say for a very long time.

For decades now, here and overseas, police have forgotten their primary role - which is to prevent crime.

The emphasis has for far too long been on catching people after they've committed the offence.

It's been almost collusion between the police and the criminals. Let them commit the crime then we'll catch them.

New commissioner Mick Fuller said his focus will be on "prevention and disruption", which is exactly what we've always needed.

Get in early, have high visibility, and so prevent the crime from being committed.
