Subpoena To Give Evidence
When a subpoena is issued for a police officer to attend and give evidence, the officer will attend court on the nominated date.
In the case of a Civil Subpoena, reasonable expenses, as determined by the police officer’s Command or Unit, must be paid prior to the date the officer is to attend court.
The subpoena must display the Court Seal, however subpoenas issued by a Local Court, can either display the Court Seal or be signed by the Registrar or both. Supreme and District Court subpoenas must display the Court Seal and be signed by the Registrar.
