“Party Safe encourages party goers to enjoy getting together safely, providing details with local police to allow an efficient policing response if police are called to your party to deal with an incident.”
As a host or partygoer this Australia Day, police are asking each person to set the standard of acceptable behaviour and ensure that it is maintained at the gathering.
“We also remind you to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions and current Queensland Health guidelines,” said Constable Hamilton.
In public places this Australia Day, police do not want to let levels of intoxication hinder peoples judgement and are hoping that everyone keeps a level head.
“Remember that police can issue on the spot fines for consuming alcohol in a public places, so make sure you know whether it is legal for you to do so wherever you are.
“Remembering the Fatal Five and planning ahead by organising a designated driver or implementing a safe transport plan ensures that people are not tempted to drink and drive, ensuring your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
“It is also important to be mindful that it is school holidays and to drive to the conditions and allow extra time for traffic on the roads to travel and reach your destination safely.
“This Australia Day, please be mindful and careful so we can all help keep our community safe,” she said.
