All regions have very diverse communities to serve, with many specialised policing needs and each covers some very different environments, from metropolitan Sydney to rural, wilderness and isolated ‘outback’ areas.

This new management structure came into effect on 1st July, 2002 and was part of former Commissioner Ryan’s overhaul of the NSW Police Force.
