Roads—parking inspectors(Question No 125)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice, on 15 February 2005:

Are trainee parking inspectors required to wear a (a) uniform when in training and (b) form of identification so that members of the public can identify that they are in training; if not, why not;

Are trainee parking inspectors required to be accompanied by a fully qualified parking inspector at all times; if not, why not.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(a) Yes. However, trainee parking inspectors do not wear a uniform in the initial two weeks of training. Parking Operations has adopted this practice to minimising trainee interaction with the public until they have received training to enable them to deal with the public and exercise delegations under the Road Transport Legislation. At the end of the two weeks and upon successful completion of conflict resolution training, a uniform is issued to the inspector.

(b) No. All parking inspectors and trainees wear an identifying badge, however the badge does not identify the status of the officer. This is not considered necessary as trainee inspectors do not issue infringements or exercise delegations.

Yes. Inspectors continue to be accompanied on the job by an experienced authorised inspector until the trainee is fully competent.

Is the process of determining pricing structures different for any of those suburbs listed in part (1); if so, why;

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
