Police Commissioner on gang patch ban

From Morning Report, 7:18 am on 26 February 2024

The Government is progressing a ban on gang patches this week, even though the policy's legality and enforceability are unclear.

The coalition will introduce legislation to Parliament to outlaw gang patches in public places.

The Police Association supports the changes but says they may be hard to enforce, as gang members won't want to give up their patches.

Police Commissioner Andrew Coster spoke to Ingrid Hipkiss.
