NSW Police & Redfern Local Area Command

The Redfern LAC came under scrutiny following 15-16 February 2004 clashes between local aboriginal youths and the Police following the death of the aboriginal youth off his bike. There were a number of inquiries into the incidents surrounding these events and we have provided details of these here.

Enhanced Policing in Redfern 2004
Enhanced Policing in Redfern 2004 was a package of 32 strategies and initiatives to enhance Policing in Redfern which was announced on 16 July 2004. It was made in response to the civil unrest of 15-16 February 2004.
NSW POLICE ABORIGINAL STRATEGIC DIRECTION 2003 - 2006
The NSW Police Aboriginal Strategic Direction 2003 - 2006 sets out the NSW Police proceedures for working in areas with sizable aboriginal communities. Redfern was one of the LACs where the document was to be implimented. If there had been more done to impliment the proceedures set out in the Strategic Direction in Redfern LAC it is likely that the Civil Unrest of 15-16 February 2004 would not have happened or would have been handled in a different manner. This document and the way in which it was implimented in Redfern was the subject of questions at the Legislative Council Inquiry into Redfern Waterloo.
Strike force Coburn
Strike force Coburn was the NSW Police report into the Civil Unrest in the Redfern Local Area Command on 15-16 February 2004. This report was tabled at the Legislative Council inquiry into Redfern Waterloo who also heard evidence from Police and the Aboriginal Community Liason Officers about the events leading up to and during the civil unrest.
NSW POLICE ABORIGINAL STRATEGIC DIRECTION 2007 - 2011
The NSW Police Aboriginal Strategic Direction (ASD) 2007 - 2011 sets out the NSW Police procedures for working in areas with sizable aboriginal communities. Redfern was one of the LACs where the document is to be implemented. The new ASD follows from the earlier 2003-2006 ASD and was released in August 2007.
