NSW police consider winding back lockout laws

FORMER champion boxer Danny Green is uncertain whether Sydney's lockout laws should be kept in place, but he can see their merits.

Reports surfaced yesterday that New South Wales Police Association president Scott Weber might support winding back the controversial curfew.

Green became the face of the "coward's punch can kill" campaign after producing a community service TV advertisement in 2013.

He said he tried to gift the warning video to the Western Australian Government, but was sent packing.

The NSW Government came knocking after Sydney teenager Daniel Christie died in a single-punch attack in Kings Cross on New Year's Eve.

Green admitted he did not predict the crackdown would lead to Sydney's current 1.30am lockout laws.

"It's not my place to say whether they are right or wrong, but talking to high-ranking members of the NSW Police force ... they've told me there have been 30% less assaults since the lockouts," he said.
