NSW Police - allegations of corrupt conduct by NSW Police officers in relation to truck repairs

The ICAC investigated allegations of corrupt practices on the part of certain NSW Police officers in relation to the heavy vehicle repair industry in and around Wagga Wagga.

The most important allegation investigated was that payments were made to police officers for confidential information, or in the vernacular, that police were acting as spotters for the truck repair companies.

As a result of work done in late 1990 and early 1991 by a joint police-ICAC team, three police officers were charged with serious offences.

The ICAC's report on its subsequent investigation, made public in May 1991, stated the opinion that consideration be given to criminal or disciplinary proceedings against a further two police officers.
