Far North Police are urging party-goers to plan ahead and use their common sense as preparations get underway for New Year’s Eve celebrations across the area.
District Officer Acting Chief Superintendent Brett Schafferius said police were well-prepared for celebrations tomorrow night – traditionally one of the busiest for crews across the far north.
“The key to a great New Year’s Eve is to plan ahead – this includes thinking about how much alcohol you’re going to drink and how you’re getting home,” he said.
“Of course, if you’re going to drink, don’t get behind the wheel. Use public transport, or ride sharing services where possible or plan a designated driver.
“As well, if you are hosting a New Year’s celebration, be sure to register your party with local police.
