Maritime Enhanced Enforcement Program

Safe and responsible use of the waterways helps ensure enjoyment for all.

While the majority of people do the right thing out on the water, there is a minority who either choose to ignore or flout the rules and regulations for safe navigation.

Anti-social, hoon or dangerous behaviour on the water not only spoils the experience of others, but puts innocent people at risk.

To respond to such behaviour and to keep our waterways enjoyable for all.

Transport for NSW, through the Centre for Maritime Safety, has established a Maritime Enhanced Enforcement Program in collaboration with NSW Police Marine Area Command.
