OUR POLICE. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866
OUR POLICE. [COMMUNICATED.] A QUESTION likely to come prominently before Parliament this session is the man-&lt;*> agement of the Police force. In the debate of Tuesday last, Mr. WATTS condemned the new system, and recommended a return to the old one, which placed the police under the control of the magistrates. He evi dently expressed the opinions of other members as well as his own when he said that the Commissioner's system, or more properly speaking, the system which formed the police into a single department, with a Commissioner at its head, was working badly in the up-country districts; so that if a special debate does not take place, there will certainly be a discussion on the Police Estimates. It is not surprising that the new order of management should have its enemies as well as its friends. The old system in operation in Queensland, was ex* tant for many years in New South Wales, which was our example in many things for a long time. The New South Wales Go vernm...
