SPER enforcement officers

Enforcement officers are responsible for executing any warrant issued by the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER), and have the power to immobilise vehicles and seize and sell personal property.

If necessary, they may apply for a search warrant to enter a premises.

Speaking to an enforcement officer

You are legally required to answer any questions asked by the enforcement officer about your:

  • full name and date of birth
  • address
  • employment details
  • bank account details
  • driver licence number
  • ownership of a specified property
  • pension details
  • income and expenditure.

To protect your privacy, our officers will only discuss information with you after they have confirmed your identity. If you don't comply with an enforcement officer's request, you could be prosecuted and fined.

You may need to provide evidence that the information you give us is correct.

Enforcement officers can:

  • help you finalise your debt with us
  • discuss your payment options
  • take payments
  • issue receipts for payments.

Identifying an enforcement officer

Each officer carries an identity card that:

  • identifies the person as an enforcement officer
  • displays a recent photograph of the officer
  • is signed by the officer
  • states an expiry date.
