Drink Driver summonsed


A man in his forties will soon be appearing at court for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, refusing to supply a breath test and resist arrest following a collision with two other vehicles, including a police vehicle, at a carpark about 12.20am on Saturday 19 August 2017.


Police would like to remind the public that driving under the influence of alcohol is a serious offence which can result in serious consequences to the community, to the driver personally as well as at court. If you plan on having a big night, make another plan as to how you will get home.



Man charged with assault


A man in his twenties has been charged with assault following an alleged assault of another man in the bathroom of the RSL about 11.30pm on Friday 18 August 2017.


Police are requesting assistance from the public with this matter. If you were at the RSL on at the time of this incident and believe you have information that can assist police, please contact us or visit the station.



Man charged with Damaging Police car


A man in his twenties will soon be appearing in court for damaging property and offensive conduct after allegedly causing damage to a police vehicle and being verbally abusive and threatening to police about 12.30am on Saturday 19 August 2017.


This is a particularly disappointing incident, given the good relationship that the Norfolk Island community has with its Police Force. 


Heavy penalties can apply to offences against the police.


P-Plater summonsed


A young lady will soon be appearing at court for driving outside the hours of her licence conditions. This serves as yet another reminder to our provisional drivers of their obligations – your licence is a privilege, not a right. For those that continue to ignore the conditions, please feel free to drop into the police station to collect your very own summons or infringement. We Police are tired of nagging!   


No P-Plate displayed - $50 fine

Excess Passengers (more than 1) = $120 Fine

Driving between 10.00pm and 6.00am – Suspension of licence for up to 6 months




Phone 22222 or 000 for enquiries, attendance and emergencies. If the station is unattended, please use the courtesy telephone located near the front door to contact on duty or on-call Police officers 24/7.
