A local action group for victims of police misconduct has offered its support to the community.

Gregory Franks from Rainbow Video on Oxford St formed the Police Integrity Group in 2007 with the view of supporting victims and pressuring authorities to remove corrupt police from the force.

The meetings, held twice a month, give victims an opportunity to share their stories, voice their concerns and receive emotional support and advice from others who have had similar experiences.

The Police Integrity Group will also organise support for those who need to make court appearances, and will work to educate citizens about their rights when dealing with police.

Franks initiated the group when he discovered an absence of suitable support and action services.

The Police Integrity Group has been meeting with the Anti-Violence Project, and has asked to assist with the Oxford Street Safe Place.

The group meets on the first and third Saturday of each month, at the East Sydney Neighbourhood Association room, on the corner of Burton St and Liverpool St.

Call Gregory Franks on 9360 6119 or 0403 911 003.
