Report a breach of the Public Health Order

There have been a number of calls from members of the public for Council Officers to enforce the provisions of the Public Health Order. The NSW Police are however the appropriate Regulatory Authority to enforce the current Public Health Order.

Any member of the public (including Council Officers) can report breaches of the Public Health Order to Crime Stoppers
