The following statement applies to the collection, use, disclosure and handling of personal information collected by New South Wales Police Force (NSW Police Force) via our NSW Police Force Community Portal website.
As a NSW government agency, we must meet the requirements of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998. However we are not required to comply with the Act unless the NSW Police Force is exercising administrative or educational functions.
The primary purpose of this Site is for members of the public to report minor crimes and therefore is not in the exercise of NSW Police Force’s administrative or educational functions. Anonymous reports of crime are not permitted; we require members of the public to provide their name and contact details when reporting a crime, in order to assist us with our investigations.
