How to access information
The Department of Police, Fire and Emergency Management is required by the Right to Information Act 2009 to make information available to the public through proactive disclosure, this means we are to routinely make information available which will assist the public in understanding what it is we do and how we do it.
This may be done via our website, through publications (e.g. fact sheets, or discussion papers) or via reports (e.g. our Annual Report).
Some information is not released in this way, either because it is not of general public interest or because it is information the Department would need to assess against the exemptions in the Right to Information Act 2009 prior to disclosure.
If you cannot find the information via one of the means below contact the Department and we may be able to assist you in finding it or we may give it to you. If it is not freely available we will assist you to make an application for an assessed disclosure.
