ACT's top cop calls for anti-consorting laws


ACT's top cop calls for anti-consorting laws

The ACT's new Chief Police Officer is calling for anti-consorting laws to be introduced in Canberra, while the ACT Government has reiterated its stance against them.

Ray Johnson says nationally consistent laws will better help ACT Police and the Australian Federal Police deal with and investigate organised crime in the Capital.

His calls echo those of former Chief Police Officer Justine Saunders and the Canberra Liberals, and come as four notorious gangs are now active in the city - Satudarah, the Rebels, the Nomads and the Comancheros.

But the Government maintains they're "not interested", claiming the laws are "ineffective".
