Police Commissioner Says This Was The Key To Foiling Riverland Plot

Dec 7, 2017


Commissioner Grant Stevens has praised the “outstanding” work of a police taskforce to foil the Riverland massacre plot, but says intel from locals was crucial.

“People within the Riverland community heard the alarm bells and had the presence of mind to come forward and advise the authorities,” Commissioner Stevens has told FIVEaa.

“If that hadn’t happened, we would’ve been behind the eight ball.

“You hate to think what might’ve happened if people didn’t come forward and share their concerns about what these kids were talking about.”
