Directions to leave to the area
A police officer/PSO can order you to leave a designated area if they reasonably believe that you are going to engage in affray or violent disorder (see common charges and offences). (section 10KA(2)).
It is an offence to refuse an order to leave a designated area. (section 10L(2) CW Act, 5 penalty units).
If a police officer does give an order for you to leave an area they must tell you that the area has been declared a ‘designated area’.
