The backbone of the NSW Police Force are the Local Area Commands (LAC), your local police. Here, most officers work as general duties police, detectives, highway patrol officers and in traffic services. They provide a comprehensive, professional community-based policing service.
Assisting our Local Area Commands are units with specialist roles such as road safety, fingerprinting, rescue, water police, air wing, intelligence analysis, anti terrorist and hostage negotiation, drug enforcement, child protection, fraud and major crime investigation.
To ensure everyone has the opportunity to play a role in crime reduction we have made a commitment to develop a partnership with the community - a relationship that breaks down barriers and improves the quality of life for everyone in NSW.
