Around 90 per cent of Territory coppers are currently dissatisfied with some elements of the NT police force, according to the Northern Territory Police Association’s pre-election survey, which will be released later this morning.
NTPA president Paul McCue said the survey would show a number of concerning results, including around the NT police’s current recruitment policy.
“Ninety per cent of our respondents found the current (recruitment) process ineffective; they are pretty startling figures,” Mr McCue said last week.
The NT Independent will release the full results of the survey later this morning, which saw NT Police members being asked to rank their top policing priorities.
Questions in the survey included members being asked if they think the Gunner Government does not understand the issues faced by police and if the government interferes too much in operational policing matters.
Other questions include if the government supports police and how members rate NT Labor’s handling of policing issues over this term of government.
The full results of the survey will be published on the NT Independent website soon after its release.
