'Designed to protect men': Top cop slammed over consent app proposal

NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller has been criticised after he proposed launching an app for couples to establish and record mutual consent before having sex.

He said during a press conference on Thursday that 15,000 women come forward last year within the state to report a sexual assault - and the number is only rising.

Mr Fuller suggested technology could be used to combat a rising tide of sexual assault and low conviction rates, noting the importance it has in most people’s every day lives. Source: Channel 9
