Police officers or corrections officers can report breaches of periodic detention orders to the Board. When advice is received of an alleged breach of a periodic detention order, the matter is considered promptly by the Board. In such circumstances the offender may be required to appear before the Board.
If a breach is proved, the Board may do one or more of the following actions:
In certain circumstances the Board is required to cancel the offender’s periodic detention order if it decides that the offender has failed to perform periodic detention on two or more occasions.
If an offender is convicted or found guilty by a court of an offence against a territory or commonwealth law that is punishable by imprisonment, since the offender was sentenced to serve periodic detention, the Board must cancel the offender's periodic detention order.
