Why are Police now issuing CCIN?
Legislation under the Criminal Code Amendment (Infringement Notices) Act 2011 now enables Western Australia Police to issue an infringement as an alternative option to deal with Criminal Conduct and WA Police must enforce the Law. In the past Police have taken offenders to the Station to be charged.
This process removes Police from the streets. Issuing a CCIN will allow Officers to remain on the streets protecting the community and reduce the number of minor criminal offence appearances in Courts.
