Victoria Police Annual Report, 1968 - praising police for the tactful manner in which they handled demonstrations

Possibly one of the most demanding problems confronting police at present is the handling of demonstrations. The strange feature of these is that often respected citizens, who attend solely to display feelings of resentment to something contrary to their own personal beliefs, seem ever ready to follow the dictates of agitators especially trained to incite people to openly oppose authority, which frequently leads to breaches of law and order.

I am pleased to report that many persons, including bystanders, on this occasion, have generously praised members of the Force for the tactful manner in which they handled this and other delicate situations, arising during demonstrations.
