The Local Laws Department has many varied roles within Council, including the enforcement of state and local legislation. Roles include animal management, traffic enforcement, local laws and school crossing supervision. Education is an important part of the role the Local Laws Officer plays in the community and is a large factor in increasing compliance with legislation, with enforcement being the last step.
