Routine Information Disclosures
Effective 2016, several broad categories of information are provided for public release by all Government departments, including organisational structure, governance policies and workforce statistics.
Right to Information (RTI)
Right to Information (RTI) releases information that is not available from another source. RTI applications are to be made in writing as an Application for Accessed Disclosure. A file service fee of $40.50 applies (as at 1 July 2019) (unless you have a waiver).
Prosecution Information (Police File)
To obtain a copy of a Police File (relating to offences you have been charged with) complete the Request for Disclosure of Information form. A file service fee of $53.90 applies (unless you have a waiver). The fee will be waived where a defendant has obtained a grant of legal aid. In other exceptional circumstances, waivers may be considered upon application to the relevant Prosecution Service on a case by case basis.
Traffic Crash Records and Offence Reports
