Data released last week revealed 66 Ballarat community members were hit with fines for breaking COVID-19 social distancing rules.
The report from Victoria Police was submitted to State Parliament's public accounts and estimates committee, which is running the government's COVID-19 inquiry.
Featuring figures from early March through to May 17, Ballarat's 66 fines were far lower than comparable areas such as Greater Bendigo, 104 fines, and Greater Geelong, 193 fines.
Surrounding regions also boasted low numbers of fines, with the Pyrenees Shire recording the lowest number of fines, three, across the entire state.
Melbourne unsurprisingly had the highest number of fines, 590, followed by Greater Dandenong, 333, Frankston, 297, and the City of Yarra, 287.
The number of fines administered in Ballarat has continued to slow in recent times, with a police spokesperson telling The Courier he was not aware of any fines which had been handed out in the past week, including during Saturday's 'Black Lives Matter' protest.
Ballarat Police Inspector Dan Davison attended the protest and said he was pleased with how it went.
"From my perspective it was a safely exercised protest and we respect the right of anyone to protest peacefully and lawfully," he said.
"It appeared as though everyone was trying their best as far as social distancing went. We had no arrests or cause to speak to anyone in terms of any wrong-doing.
"Our stance from the very get-go was to provide whatever support we could to the organisers of the rally to make sure we had a peaceful rally and to make sure there was no impact on the broader community."
He confirmed no one was fined during the protest.
