Safety at the races

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

EMER­ALD po­lice are re­mind­ing peo­ple to stay safe this week­end.

Of­fi­cer in charge of Emer­ald po­lice Se­nior Sergeant Peter McFarlane said they want to make sure it’s a great week­end.

“Ex­tra po­lice have been drawn in from Rock­hamp­ton and Bris­bane to en­sure ev­ery­one does the right thing,” he said.

“Po­lice will be out in force on the roads, in li­cenced premises and at the races.

“Each year there’s al­ways a small per­cent­age of peo­ple who go over­board and put the safety of oth­ers at risk.

“We want peo­ple to en­joy them­selves and re­mem­ber the week­end for pick­ing a win­ner and not for re­ceiv­ing a ticket or wak­ing up in the watch­house.”
