Children as young as 10 on "secret police blacklist": study

Dr Vicki Sentas spoke to ABC Radio AM (25 October 2017), regarding her recent report into the Suspect Target Management Plan (STMP).

Dr Vicki Sentas explained that, "Young people [were] coming in saying I'm on the STOMP, and we were saying, What is this STOMP?".

She went on to say, "Traditional policing is about investigating an offence that's actually happened in order to find the offender. What the STMP does, it's not based on police suspecting that someone's done something or they're about to do something, police target people on the STMP because of who they are".
