Variation and revocation of public safety order

87U Variation and revocation of public safety order

(1) Subject to subsection (3), a public safety order may be varied or revoked by a senior police officer before the order ceases to be in force (whether or not he or she is the same officer who made the original order).
(2) Without limiting subsection (1), the Commissioner must revoke a public safety order if the Commissioner becomes aware that the order was erroneously made or that the grounds for its making no longer exist.
(3) A public safety order that is made or varied by the Commissioner may be subsequently varied or revoked only by the Commissioner.
(4) A variation of a public safety order must comply with the requirements of this Part concerning the appropriate content, duration and grounds for making a public safety order.
Note : See also section 87T concerning the service and notification of variations to public safety orders.
(5) The revocation of a public safety order takes effect when the person to whom the order applies is served by means of personal service with a written notice of the revocation.
(6) If a public safety order applies to more than one person and a variation or revocation is served on those persons at different times, the order continues in force in relation to a person to whom the order applies until--
(a) in the case of a variation--the varied order is served on, or otherwise brought to the notice of, the person in accordance with section 87T, or
(b) in the case of a revocation--the written notice of revocation is served on the person.
