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.
