    • Pieter,
      This website is not directly affiliated with any of Australia’s Police Forces.

      I would assume that you will need to submit a GIPA ( old Freedom of Information) application to the relevant Police Force for the information you seek.


  • I would like to get the Police report for a fire at 66 Sowerby St Muswellbrook. event no. E68998044

    • Hi Tim,

      this website is not directly affiliated with NSWPF – therefore you would have to attend your local Station, or speak with the Police who attended that job, in order to possibly obtaining a copy of that Event.
