Our “Get to know your AVO’’ toolkit highlights the importance of understanding the AVO rules.
Getting an AVO from the police can be both upsetting and confusing. AVOs have rules that have to be followed, so it is best to get reliable information and support as soon as possible.
Understanding those rules and possible consequences if they are broken is important.

The Department of Justice has developed a 25-minute video “So you have to go to court” and a resource kit has been developed for people with cognitive disability in the community.
The DVD follows the stories of two people with cognitive disabilities as they prepare for and go to court – one as a witness and the other as defendant.
Please note if you click on this kit you will be leaving our site and be directed to the Department of Justice website.
