Obtaining information from authorised officers

Estimated reading: 1 minute 56 views

Usually, authorised officers must tell you their name and their status as an authorised officer.

For example, if an authorised DELWP officer asks for your name and address, they must also give you with proof of their identity if you ask (FA s 95B, SPLA s 17(6)).

Similarly, an authorised DELWP officer can’t order you to leave a public safety zone without first showing you proof of their identity and official status (SPLA s 14).

Authorised Council officers must, if you ask, produce their ID that has their photo, their signature and the signature of a member of Council (LGA ( s 224(4)).
