Community reminded to comply with public health orders during extended lockdown
Greater Sydney Police are working to ensure compliance following the extension of public health orders announced by NSW Health today.
State Emergency Operations Comptroller Assistant Commissioner Gary Worboys said with the extension now is not the time for people, especially in southwest Sydney, to become complacent .
“Additional officers will be deployed to areas of concern that have been identified, including Fairfield, Liverpool and Bankstown, to ensure that the public complies with current orders,” Deputy Commissioner Worboys said.
Complaints from members of the public have led to the issuance of numerous Penalty Violation Notices (PINs) of $ 1,000 every day.
At around 1:30 p.m. yesterday (Tuesday 6 July 2021) officers from the Liverpool City Police Area Command visited a hairdresser on Flowerdale Road, Liverpool, after receiving reports from the community that the company was still trading in violation of current health ordinances.
Police spoke to the owner, a 59-year-old man and a 22-year-old customer of the store who had their hair cut.
Both men received a PIN of $ 1,000 for not following the noted instruction – individual.
A total of 75 PINs were issued yesterday and out of those 37 they were $ 200 infractions for failing to wear a tight-fitting face cover.
Police continue to call on the community to report suspected violations of any ministerial directive or behavior that may affect the health and safety of the community.
Anyone with information regarding individuals or companies in violation of a ministerial directive related to COVID-19 is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. The information is treated in a strictly confidential manner.
