Police increase presence in Sydney's southwest
Police have begun descending on Sydney’s southwest after NSWPF Deputy Commissioner Mal Lanyon announced a "dedicated police operation" starting from 7am on Friday.
The operation will consist of 100 additional police officers in the south-west of Sydney.
"Our work has been solely dedicated on ensuring community safety," Deputy Comm Lanyon said.
"We have moved across the metropolitan area in order to police areas of concern as they've been raised by (NSW) health."
He said officers have made sure to be visible with the community throughout the lockdown to "educate" people about how they should comply with the health orders.
"Clearly, we are still having members of the community who will not comply," he said.
"Where we haven't been able to achieve compliance, we have enforced those health orders, and whilst obviously we continue to wish to get compliance, we will enforce as necessary."
