4 – Imprisonment


If fine and enforcement fees are not paid, or the requirements under the Work and Development Order/Community Work are not completed or cancelled, a Warrant of Commitment may be issued. This will result in being arrested and sent to prison for a specific number of days, according to the amount of fine. Currently, each day served will reduce the fine by $250.

If all offences are non-payment of fines, payment of these fines will result in release from prison. If the client has other offences, and would otherwise remain in prison they can have their fines reduced, and this will run concurrently with other time served, including other fines payment.
