Objectionable Material

The term ‘objectionable material’ usually relates to any publication that deals with subjects like sex, horror, crime, cruelty and violence.

A publication is deemed to be objectionable if it describes, depicts or otherwise deals with these subjects in a way that’s likely to cause injury to the public good.

Who’s Responsible?

Police have a team working to handle Objectionable Material incidents.

What they’ll do

We recommend you report directly to relevant authorities.

Make a report by phoning or visiting your local police station.
