NSW Police Service - matters relating to police and confidential information

This investigation concerned the discovery of confidential NSW Police Service documents, a police badge and other items in the possession of criminals. The ICAC's investigation focused mainly on the discovery that several criminals possessed copies of the SIG's Major Active Criminals (MAC) List, which included details of known criminals, their associates, types of activity for which the person was known or suspected, and the identity of police interested in the individual.

In its report on this investigation, made public in June 1994, the ICAC stated it would refer information that suggested that a serving member of the NSW Police Service may have accepted a bribe from a known criminal in exchange for the "fixing" of a prosecution to the Director of Public Prosecutions for his consideration of charges of bribery. The report also analysed relevant policies and procedures relating to the protection of confidential information and made seven corruption prevention recommendations to the NSW Police Service.
