Public Order and Safety

Our rangers enforce by-laws and Australian traffic laws. They engage the community with education of our laws and work with the Katherine Counter Disaster Management Group in times of emergencies and disasters..

By-laws are local laws established by Council to deal with issues specific to our municipality's boundaries and works within the framework of the Northern Territory's Local Government Act 2019. They deal with health & safety, animal management, public libraries and places, car parking, and council meetings & procedures.
