What is ‘assault police and other actions’?

This offence occurs where an accused person causes a police officer to fear immediate and unlawful violence (even where there is no intention to cause such a response.) or is physically struck. Being reckless to the act is enough to attract the charge.

The offence also includes other actions such as: stalking, harassing, intimidating or throwing a missile at a police officer.

Charges will not be valid unless the alleged office occurs while in execution of the police officer’s duty.
