Officers from The Hume Police District are continuing to enforce all public health orders as the number of community transmissions of COVID-19 increases across the Greater Sydney area.
Police are focused on doing everything they can to ensure regional NSW remains safe from the virus.
Key to the success in regional NSW will be community cooperation with the public health orders, and particularly, the willingness of locals to call out those who are still doing the wrong thing.
As Commissioner Fuller said on Monday (July 12), there were more than 3000 COVID-19 related calls to Crimestoppers over the weekend across the state.
Superintendent Paul Condon, The Hume Police District, said police were pleased with the general level of compliance with the health orders so far.
"It has been great to see the vast majority of the community doing the right thing - wearing a mask in indoor areas, checking in everywhere they go - these small actions can save lives," Superintendent Condon said.
"However, we have been disappointed some community members still think the rules don't apply to them.
"A number of Penalty Infringement Notices have been issued across The Hume Police District over the past week.
"So - if you're not doing the right thing, prepare to be fined."
Anyone who has information regarding individuals or businesses in contravention of a COVID-19-related ministerial direction is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
Information is treated in strict confidence.
The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
