The Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC), the NSW Police watchdog, is examining the use of force by Police, along with systemic issues related to the arrest and detention of children in Operation Mantus.

A then 13 year old boy was hospitalised with head injuries on the Northern Rivers of NSW after a brutal incident on 11th September last year following a chase by undercover Police.

This comes hot on the heels of another critical incident investigation into the tasering of ninety-five year old Clare Nowland in her aged care home in the Snowy Mountains region last month.
