Gay cops being targeted unfairly

Greens MLC and justice spokesperson Lee Rhiannon has written to the NSW Ombudsman indicating her concern that a report investigating the 'lifestyles' of officers at Surry Hills police station could discriminate against lesbian and gay police officers.

An article in today's Daily Telegraph suggests that lesbian and gay police officers could be transferred from Surry Hills police station
because they go to gay bars off-duty.

"Obviously heterosexual police officers frequent their local bars. The Greens want to know what is the difference between this and gay and lesbian officers going to their local bars?" asked Ms Rhiannon.
