The Police Integrity Commission (PIC) is investigating the police response to a call made before the killing of a West Wyalong man, with revelations that it wasn’t responded to for at least an hour.

NSW Police have reported problems with radios dropping out of reception in the southern region and at the time of the alleged murder.

It is believed the PIC will focus its investigation on the operation of the radios.

Bland mayor Neil Pokoney raised the case at council’s last meeting and has said council will respond to the findings of the PIC investigation.

“When you ring triple-0 there is a clear expectation that help is on the way,” he said.

“We would be looking for an assurance about what transpired on that day to create the delay if it is proven.”

Councillor Pokoney said a “set of circumstances” would have had to contributed to a delayed police response to a triple-0 call.

“It’s all in the context of that investigation,” he said.
