Police firearms in court – May 19, 2015 (PDF version)

Following media and delegate concerns about police firearms in court, the PSA consulted members about their views. Feedback about the issue was mixed with some supporting the Police Association position and some not.

On 12 May the PSA General Secretary Anne Gardiner and Manager Industrial James Shaw met with Scott Weber, the President of the NSW Police Association to discuss the matter.

Mr Weber agreed with the PSA position that issues relating to Court security are, in part, due to a lack of resources he said that he supported the PSA and PSA members in our efforts to increase resources in the Courts. Further, he assured the PSA he Police Association was not attempting to have their members perform any of the work being undertaken by Sheriff’s Officers.
