NSW Police will be out monitoring the beaches this weekend.

The increased police presence is part of a Sydney-wide operation that will see thousands of police officers deployed across Greater Sydney from the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command, Police Transport Command and general duties to enforce the health orders.

Earlier this week, the NSW government announced enhanced police powers, additional fines and tighter new rules that will spearhead the enforcement response against people who refuse to do the right thing during a global pandemic, including:

• new powers that have been granted to the NSW Police Commissioner to shut down businesses, construction sites and public premises where there is a risk to public health; and

• penalties for not wearing a mask where required increased from $200 to $500.

Northern Beaches Council rangers, together with the Local Area Command will be actively monitoring the beaches and public spaces to ensure everyone is doing the right thing.
