Mas­sive po­lice blitz planned

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

NEAR-RECORD num­bers of po­lice of­fi­cers will be hit­ting the streets across the re­gion this week­end in a zero-tol­er­ance road safety Easter blitz. Po­lice will alert dur­ing the crack­down on driver be­hav­iour in an at­tempt to curb the high vol­ume of traf­fic in­ci­dents com­mon at Easter. Queens­land Po­lice In­spec­tor Jim Plow­man said the blitz would in­volve one of the largest de­ploy­ments of of­fi­cers in a sin­gle hol­i­day op­er­a­tion for the re­gion. ‘‘We have con­cerns for peo­ple trav­el­ling long dis­tances for what is a short hol­i­day pe­riod .’’ he said.
