Silverwater Park

BE AWARE

July – uniformed and plain-clothed officers intimidating men… they’ve been seen searching the park and cars, and ‘laying in wait’ for people to return to their cars… also be aware of unmarked police vehicles and plain-clothed officers pulling people over.

if only police were this responsive to homophobic violence…

__________________________________________________________________________

April – reports indicate plain-clothed officers are patrolling the park before alerting uniformed police… this ‘entrapment-like behaviour’ is unacceptable.

if you’ve been approached by plain-clothed officers, always ask for their name/rank/station and to see identification.

if you believe you’ve been treated inappropriately by officers – REPORT the incident and consider making a complaint.
