Abstract

Following the riots at Cronulla and other Sydney beaches, the NSW Government introduced a raft of legislative amendments with the expressed aim of preventing and controlling large-scale public disorder incidents through the Law Enforcement Legislation Amendment (Public Safety) Act 2005. In addition to the new laws there has also been discussion and trials relating to various enhancements in police hardware to respond to public disorder. This chapter will discuss the new approaches to policing and the legal framework within which they have occurred post-Cronulla.
