The Bill also makes amendments to the Act to allow identifying particulars to be taken from both charged and uncharged suspects, to make changes to the manner in which consent is requested from charged suspects, and to enable police to request a person to remove headwear or do other things to facilitate the officer being able to confirm a person's identity.
