NSW Opposition plan to search criminals without a warrant

The New South Wales Opposition is pushing for new laws to allow police to search the homes and cars of some criminals without a warrant.

The extra powers would relate to bikies and other criminal gang members who were the subject of a Firearms Prohibition Order.

The order can be placed on criminals by the Police Commissioner to ban them from owning a gun.

Opposition Leader John Robertson will introduce legislation to State Parliament that would extend those powers, allowing police to stop and search anyone subject to a Firearms Prohibition Order, without a warrant.

Cars and homes would also be able to be searched for illegal guns under the plan — via redwolf.newsvine.com
