Safety at the races
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.”
