Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : August 13 2008
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, August 14, 2008 Extra powers in force NEW police surveillance powers allow police to electronically monitor suspects for four days be- fore seeking a warrant. One warrant now covers a range of surveillance tech- nologies including com- puter monitoring, visual surveillance, listening de- vices and tracking devices. Warrants also last 90 days instead of 21 and can be approved retrospectively where there is an ''immi- nent threat of serious viol- ence, substantial damage to property or where serious narcotics offence will be committed.'' Where a judge does not approve the warrant, infor- mation gathered must be destroyed. The move has upset civil liberties cam- paigners who described the laws as unnecessary.

He was taken by ambulance to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he is in a stable condition. Police established a crime scene and searched the area.

Teams of uniformed police and four drug detection dogs deployed around Olympic Park found more than 210 ecstasy pills, 40 capsules of speed, as well as small quantities of amphetamines and cannabis. Six people were charged with supplying a drug, including one man who was arrested for allegedly being in possession of 110 pills. A teenage girl was also charged after allegedly being found with 51 pills. A small number of juveniles will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act. Flemington commander Insp Brett Henderson described it as ''a very pleasing result''. ''Operations of this sort that involve the NSW Police Force and community are important in ensuring that people can enjoy themselves in a safe, drug-free environ- ment,'' he said. ''It is also good to ensure that we have stopped such dangerous, addictive drugs from being distributed to juveniles as well as the general community and we are very pleased to have the cooperation of the general community.'' More than 5000 people attended the event. 3 POLICE are investigating an armed robbery at an Earlwood takeway shop last Wednesday.
