NSW Police - conduct of Sutherland Licensing Police

The ICAC investigated the conduct of NSW Police in the Sutherland district, in particular officers responsible for licensed premises, and the handling of complaints against police in that district, in particular complaints in connection with licensed premises. The investigation focused on allegations that for an 18-month period from 1984, weekly payments had been made by the Caringbah Inn Hotel’s licensee to a licensing police officer.

In its report on the investigation, made public in February 1991, the ICAC stated its opinion that consideration should be given to the prosecution of one person, a former NSW Police officer, for common law bribery.
