Far South Coast police are urging people to party safely this festive season.
Local Area Commander Acting Superintendent Angela Burnell encouraged the community to enjoy themselves responsibly over the holiday period.
“Police are asking the public to maintain a safe party environment. This is a time to enjoy the company of family and friends. We ask all to be mindful of their social activities and impacts on neighbours and people around them,” Acting Superintendant Burnell said.
“During the summer months many people have parties, barbecues, picnics and socialising in general. Being responsible with alcohol consumption and noise is important for all, especially the party hosts,” she said.
“Sometimes police are called to parties that have loud music or gatherings. This can be due to a lack of planning, supervision or care for neighbouring properties.
“It is the host’s responsibility to ensure the safety of their guests, which also extends beyond their residence.
“Good planning can reduce the risk of potential problems before the party begins, saving difficulties later on. There can be legal implications if police are called.
“If revellers plan their night and take simple precautions, then a good time should be had by all,” Acting Superintendant said.
