NSW Police

NSW Police is the NSW Government law-enforcement agency which has powers under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Officers of NSW Police are based throughout the state. Contact the Police if inspectors from the RSPCA or the Animal Welfare League NSW are not available to attend, or if the matter is particularly urgent or serious.

To make a complaint, ensure that you have all the necessary information, and telephone the Police Assistance Line on 131 444, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If the Police Assistance Line can not directly assist you with your inquiry, they can refer you to the appropriate person or section who can.
