Acts Amendment (Police Immunity) Bill 1999

Bill No. 32
Long Title The purpose of this Bill is to provide protection from civil action against a member of the Police Service. This protection is for anything that the member has done, without corruption or malice, in the performance of their functions as a member of the Police Service, whether or not under a written or other law.
