The NSW Police Force now lurches from one crisis to the next. The author reveals the scandals, blunders and media propaganda within the power brokers of society. He writes about the cover-ups that leave NSW vulnerable and that have been, until now, kept from the public domain. 'The cops that once brought safety to the community streets for over a century have now become enemies of the state.' Powerful stuff.
Tim Priest draws comparisons between international policing standards and argues how ineffectual policing has allowed organised crime to spiral out of control and how the 'war' on drugs in NSW has been lost forever. Drawing on research from parliamentary enquiries, committee reports, Supreme Court documents, affidavits, media articles, interviews, police court briefs, speeches and other research, Tim Priest leaves no stone unturned in his pursuit of the truth and accountability. Enemies of the State scratches the surface and uncovers a vast web of scandal, intrigue, deception and illegal activity that will change the public's perception of and faith in NSW Police.
