In response to reports on the matter connected with the Newtown Local Area Command currently before NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal the Greens Member for Newtown, Jenny Leong MP said:
"It is crucial that there is independent scrutiny of this serious issue and I will be watching the progress of this matter closely."
"When this issue was first reported in October 2016, we raised our concerns directly with the Police Minister Troy Grant and urged him to take action to re-assure the community about this. It is unclear what action, if any, was taken."
"The information exposed raises a number of serious questions for our local community - a community that proudly flies the rainbow flag and celebrates diversity."
"Let's be clear, homophobia and discrimination are never okay."
