A person in fear of another because of a threat may bring a complaint in the approved form to a justice of the peace. The justice of the peace may direct the person who issued the threat to appear before a Magistrate. At the scheduled appearance time, the Magistrate may order that the person be of good behaviour and keep the peace for a specified period of time.

If the complaint is not actioned, the justice of the peace must send the complaint to the local Magistrates Court.
