Send in the taskforce: councillor

A prominent councillor says if necessary, the police taskforce should be deployed to keep the peace in town camps: "We must not return to the situation where police are kept out of the camps after dark and needed permits to enter," says Cr Steve Brown (pictured).
Cr Brown, who had the highest vote in the recent council elections, was commenting after a riot in Hidden Valley Town Camp on Wednesday, when it was alleged rioters attacked police, released prisoners from a paddy wagon and smashed police vehicles. Police were also attacked and injured during a melee in Hidden Valley in May.
