Police and crime

Most criminal offences heard by a local court are commenced by New South Wales police. If you have been charged with a criminal offence you will receive a Court Attendance Notice.

You will also receive a Court Attendance Notice if you had received a penalty notice or infringement and have chosen to have the matter heard by a court.

A Court Attendance Notice is a document that tells you:

  • details of the alleged offence
  • which court will hear your case
  • when and where to attend court.

If you have received a Court Attendance Notice find out more about criminal cases.
