Call for an Independent Body to Investigate Police Shootings: a joint letter to the Victorian Government

On 1 and 2 May 2011 there were two police shootings in Victoria, one of which was fatal. In response, the Federation of Community Legal Centres, Flemington Kensington Community Legal Centre, Darebin Legal Centre and the Human Rights Law Centre wrote to three Victorian Ministers requesting that an independent body be properly empowered and resourced to investigate police shootings and deaths in custody.
