Police denial

THE top cop in Coffs/Clarence says his troops are not rejecting reports of assaults.

Superintendent Mark Holahan responded to claims that NSW Police had knocked back reports of crime – assaults in particular – due to pressure to meet crime targets.

“The policy in this command is not to reject assaults,” said Mr Holahan.

“A number of assaults are reported where victims don’t require further action but they remain on the system. The only time we can reject an assault is if we have direct and irrefutable evidence supported by other parties.”

Mr Holahan said 130 assaults had been reported to Coffs Harbour police in the first three months of this year, up by 37 compared to the same time last year.
