Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

If you have not given the police a statement and you are the one that is the protected person you can ask for it to be withdrawn.

You have to contact the police and speak to them and ask for it to be withdrawn.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
