Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 13 Hansard (14 December) . . Page.. 4254..


(4) In September 2005 ACT Policing implemented, in partnership with the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions, a process to report upon and evaluate failed and withdrawn prosecutions. The process aims to identify existing or potential systemic faults, either within the preparation of briefs of evidence by ACT Policing, or within the presentation of material to the court by the ACT DPP.

The ACT Policing Prosecution and Judicial Support Team conduct ongoing training in 'Brief Adjudication' for team leaders. The training is provided in partnership with the ACT DPP and aims to ensure appropriate quality assurance is applied to the preparation and submission of briefs of evidence.

(5) During 2005-06 ACT Policing met all relevant key performance measures prescribed by the ACT Policing Purchase Agreement.

Statistical evidence is provided within the ACT Policing Annual Report in Table B21, Part B, page 57.
