Senior NSW police officer shredded documents from meetings with Catholic Church officials
New South Wales Police has admitted all records of a senior officer's involvement with a key Catholic Church body set up to deal with sexual abuse cases have been shredded.
This includes briefing papers and all documentation over a five-year period from 1998 to 2003.
The revelations come from Freedom of Information (FOI) documents obtained by the ABC's Lateline program.
The top level group established by the Catholic Church's bishops is known as the Professional Standards Resource Group (PSRG).
It was created in 1997 in response to the Wood Royal Commission into the police and paedophilia, and its key function was to advise the church on specific cases involving clergy and others.
