This excerpt is from the Memorandum of Understanding Between NSW Police and Department of Community Services dated 2006. It explains the differences between the roles of the NSW Police and that of NSW Department of Community Services. It is very clear that the role of the police is to investigate and the role of community services is to gather information.
So our question is why does the Department of Community Services continually prevent JIRT from doing their job, and exposing sexual assaults on children and young person in care?
DoCS continally state the evidence did not meet the reportable threshold, whilst the child has told the teacher that they are allowed to play with themselves because the foster carer plays with them too. Could somebody please tell us how the f*%k this is not reportable? And if you don't believe this to be true, just have a look at the reply that was received stating it wasnt.
