Justice and Community Safety have published their latest effort to recruit the next generation of police informants.
The Office of Regulatory Services monitors retail compliance with the cigarette ‘sale to minors’ provision of
the Tobacco Act 1927. The Act prohibits the sale of smoking products to anyone under the age of 18.
The Office is introducing a program of compliance testing throughout the ACT. The testing is undertaken
with the assistance of persons between the ages of 15-16 years acting as purchasing assistants.
Applicants must be:
• a non-smoker
• 15 or 16 years of age
• have parental consent and
• be committed to the prevention of the sale of smoking products to minors.
NOTE: Purchasing assistants will receive gift vouchers or movie tickets for their involvement.
