New Year’s Eve: Police target pub-goers

“PROBLEMATIC” people who drink too much will not be tolerated in Mildura on New Year’s Eve.

Mildura police Senior Sergeant Stephen Phelan said officers would be “patrolling everywhere” in a plannedoperation targeting anti-social behaviour.

He said the aim was toensure the majority of people weren’t interrupted during their celebrations.

“We will have our fair share of some problematic people who drink too much, but hopefully we can nip that in the bud pretty early on,” Sen-Sgt Phelan said.

“The incidents could occur outside licensed premises, at private parties, and we’ll have sufficient numbers to attend to any incident that may occur.”

Sen Sgt Phelan said there were no major incidents on December 31 last year and police were hopeful the trend would continue.

“The main message is just to enjoy yourself,” he said.

“Police are not there to curb your enjoyment.

“You just need to berespectful of those partaking in celebrations.”

In addition to targeting pub-goers, police will also be ensuring motorists ring in the new year with no tragedies.

“There’ll be highway patrol officers out in force also tomorrow night,” Sen-Sgt Phelan said.

“So if people decide to drink and drive, chances are they’regoing to get caught.

“If you think you’re going to drink, then leave the car at home.”
