NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller says he has formally asked for support from the Australian Defence Force to enforce Covid-19 restrictions in Greater Sydney.
Commissioner Fuller on Thursday afternoon confirmed his request for 300 army personnel, after the state recorded 239 new local cases of the virus and authorities introduced harsher restrictions for eight local government areas.
In a statement, NSW police said they would “significantly” expand their compliance operation “over the coming days” to clamp down on any rule breaking as Sydney enters another month of strict stay-at-home rules.
