Police warn that they will be cracking down on heavy vehicle companies and drivers who operate unsafely. This warning comes as police across Australia and New Zealand launch Operation AUSTRANS (20 May - 16 June 2013).
The Tasmania Police Charity Trust was established in December 2006 with a goal of fundraising to provide assistance to members of the community in need, including nominated charities and disadvantaged individuals in Tasmania.
The Police Assistance Line (131 444) is a national number for the public to contact police for non-emergencies. For example, call 131 444 to report irresponsible driving or a noisy party. 131 444 calls are charged at a local rate (except for mobiles).
