When does the PPO go into effect?

The order goes into effect as soon as the judge signs it. The personal protection order (PPO) can be enforced immediately. However, if the Respondent has not yet been served with a copy of the PPO, he will be orally informed of the terms of the order by the responding police officer and given an opportunity to comply with the order.
