The Smacking Police

Has anyone else noticed the point former cop Chester Borrows is making on the smacking bill? He says police will have to investigate every allegation, and points to existing police policy manuals:
The Police Family Violence Policy says:
17. “Police called to attend situations involving family violence as outlined in Appendix One must treat such situations seriously and action taken must focus on: Protection for victims .; Identifying and investigating offences; and arresting offenders.”
19. “Given sufficient evidence, offenders who are responsible for family violence offences shall, except in exceptional circumstances, be arrested.”
52. “The majority of offenders in family violence cases will appear before the court. There may be rare cases when diversion might be considered, providing it is not seen as the ’easy option’.”
