Police will be out in force this New Year’s Eve

TWEED Police and their Coolangatta counterparts will be out in force tonight to combat any anti-social behaviour.

They are encouraging revellers to enjoy themselves this New Year's Eve, but to ensure they drink within their limits and do not spoil anyone else's night.

Byron Bay is a particular focal point for Tweed Byron LAC, but more officers will be on shift across the entire shire.

"We've got a lot of extra police on at Byron Bay," Acting Inspector Warwick Rhodes said.

"But there are extra police everywhere. We have all of our officers rostered on tonight, even if they were on leave they've been called in."

Insp Rhodes had a few choice words for those indulging in a New Year's Eve tipple or two.

"Have fun, get out and enjoy it, but know that police will have zero-tolerance towards anti-social behaviour," he said.

Insp Rhodes advised revellers to think of a way home beforehand if drinking and added that additional RBT and random drug test points will be set up across the Tweed.
