The NSW Police Association praised the "seamless" co-operation between the Australian Federal and NSW Police services today.
Referring to the recent raid on a Darlinghurst Law Firm, a spokesman said "The one time that crims don't expect a raid is just after they've been raided. All sorts of people come out of the woodwork then."
"We had information that armed suspects may have been in the area. The initial Federal raid relied upon surprise for safety, and grabbed the evidence after successfully infiltrating the place. After a short pause to let any armed suspects come out of hiding, the NSW police sent in a fully equipped Armed Response Unit, with senior police officers leading the charge. The Old One-Two."
"NSW and Federal Police, working in seamless co-operation, will continue to adapt and use imaginative tactics like these in future."
The spokesman refused to elaborate further.
