Crackdown on retail QR check-in
POLICE are conducting a compliance crackdown on the use of QR check-in and face masks in and around supermarkets and large retail premises.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller says there is no reasonable excuse that members of the wider community are not adhering to current health orders and using the QR check in and wearing face masks.
NSW police will have a zero-tolerance approach to members of the public and businesses breaching these orders.
Recent heath advice has shown that supermarkets and large retail stores are a known source of concern when it comes to spreading Covid-19.
Businesses not complying with the QR checking system will receive a $5,000 fine. Members of the public who fail to check in using the QR code will be fined a total of $1,000. Not wearing a face mask carries a fine of $500.

Arrest six over vandalism, thefts
SIX people have been charged following an investigation into significant graffiti damage of trains, rail carriages and infrastructure across the Sydney rail network.
In May 2021, officers attached to the Police Transport and Public Safety Command’s Proactive Crime Team North/Central, established Strike Force Wolstoneholme to investigate eight property damage offences between February and July this year across the Sydney rail network.
During the investigation police allegedly seized a large quantity of luxury designer clothing valued at $30,000, two watches valued at $18,000, 97 spray cans, bolt cutters, a crowbar, 170g of MDMA, cannabis and a hydroponic set-up.
Police Transport Command North/Central Commander, Detective Acting Superintendent Todd Cunningham, said officers conducted an extensive and thorough investigation into the activities of this group.
“These individuals are alleged to have caused significant damage to trains, rail carriages and infrastructure across the Sydney rail network by spray painting graffiti tags and murals on government property,” Supt Cunningham said.
“These acts are reckless, dangerous and simply unnecessary.
“They put lives at risk by entering secured areas and also cost thousands of dollars in damages.
“Following our investigations, police not only located a substantial number of tools and spray cans allegedly used in the offences, they also seized a commercial quantity of MDMA and uncovered sophisticated hydroponic cannabis set-up.
“It is clear that the activities of this group extend well beyond graffiti offences and investigations will continue.”
