Police Protection Notices

What are Police Protection Notices?

Police Protection Notices are legal notices given by the police to ensure an individual’s or a group’s immediate safety and protection and notably in circumstances involving potential threats, harassment, or violence. These notices are intended to provide swift intervention and protect individuals from harm while legal processes are initiated or taking place. This enables the police to serve the respondent at the scene of the incident rather than the aggrieved party waiting for the Court to consider an application for a Domestic Violence Order.

Who Is Eligible For A Police Protection Notice?

A Police Protection Notice can be issued by the police to protect an individual who feels threatened, harassed, or at risk of violence from another person. Victims of domestic violence, stalking, harassment, or situations where there is a serious concern for personal safety may fall into this category. Typically, the person protected by the notice is alleged to be in danger and to require immediate protection.
