​COVID-19 Identifying Essential Services staff

We have received the following advice from Police:

In terms of identification for your workers who are required to be out in the community delivering essential services, there is no ‘official’ or standard identification card or similar that is required. Rather, Police will take a reasonable approach and endeavour to confirm the role of anyone spoken to, for example by the individual producing:

- A letter of authorisation on company letterhead, or

- A company identification card, or

- A business card with company logo, or

- A copy of an email from a company manager.

If in doubt, our officers have been directed to make enquiries by telephone to confirm identification.
