1. La Trobe University organises an “End of the Year Ball” for staff and students. The Vice-
Chancellor (VC) of the university is concerned about the security at the campus. He advises
the department responsible for security matters on the campus to approach the local police
regarding security issues on the night of the Ball. The VC also fears that some students from
other universities may gate crash the party and create nuisance at the campus. Senior
Sergeant Ratty advises the university officials that he would have a police van periodically
patrolling the area during the Ball. The university wants two police officers on duty on the
dance floor and a stationary police van at the campus.
Sergeant Ratty agrees to the university’s request. He, however, advises that there would be an
extra cost for the services of the police officer. The university officials believe that it is the
duty of the police to protect the safety of individuals in Victoria hence no extra payment for
the police services may be required. Later, the police send an invoice of $5,000 for their
services.
The university refuses to pay.
Does La Trobe University have to pay for the amount owing on the invoice?
