Crunulla riot probe highlights cop failures
The 33-page report, compiled by former senior officers Ron Sorrenson and Tony Jeffries, was released today by NSW police.
It looks at the management of Strike Force Enoggera, established to investigate the December 11 riot and subsequent retaliatory attacks.
It investigated why Police Commissioner Ken Moroney was not told of the existence of video footage of a man being bashed by a gang of Middle Eastern youths on the night following the riot.
Following the reported oversight, Mr Moroney removed Acting Superintendent Dennis Bray as the head of the strike force.
He was later reinstated under Supt Ken McKay after detectives threatened industrial action.
The report said the “unintentional omission” to advise the commissioner of the video was the most significant breakdown in communications.
“Whilst this omission was not as a result of the actions of any one person or an attempt to deliberately mislead the commissioner, it highlighted a deficiency in the system,” the report said.
Mr Moroney, in a statement accompanying the report, said all its nine recommendations were accepted.
He said a “business case” will be made to the NSW government relating to the capturing and cataloguing of photographic images.
However, he noted the methodology adopted by Strike Force Enoggera was successful, leading to the arrest and charging of 103 offenders – 51 in relation to the riot and 52 for the revenge attacks.
“Strike Force Enoggera was successful in that regard, however we will investigate what technologies are available to enhance our capacity to collate and process large volumes of visual data,” he said.
Mr Moroney also today released a report into a complaint alleging NSW police failed to respond to an assault on Mr Jasen (Jasen) Greeks during Sydney’s Macquarie Field riot.
The police investigation was oversighted by the ombudsman’s office.
Mr Moroney said an apology was sent to Mr Greeks in early September.
Ombudsman Bruce Barbour today said the original internal police investigation into the Greeks matter had been deficient and had “not covered areas that should have been covered”.
“Finally when they (police) went back and looked at the matter again at our urging, they ultimately agreed with our view about the matters,” Mr Barbour told reporters.
