The Acting Ombudsman, Professor John McMillan, has reviewed the operation of the NSW consorting law over a three year period from its commencement in April 2012. The consorting law aims to prevent crime by disrupting or deterring associations that may lead to the building or continuation of criminal networks. It is a criminal offence for a person to continue to associate or communicate with at least two people who have previously been convicted of an indictable offence, after receiving an official police warning.
