TIPS IF YOU ARE PLAN TO HAVE A PARTY
YOU can register your party with police and then receive the wristbands, which can be used to identify invited guests. It ensures that if things do go wrong on the night, police have the information necessary to quickly and effectively deal with any issues. Things you can do for a safer party Make entrance to the party by invitation only. This way there will only be people you know and want at your party and it will discourage gatecrashers. Avoid using the Internet, SMS, email distribution lists, online notice boards, social networking sites or word of mouth to advertise your party. Make the start and finish times clear on your invitation. Encourage parents to collect their children or for guests to make arrangements for safe transport home at the end of the party. Make sure that any out-of-bounds areas are adequately secured. Remember it is your party and you have the right to set the standard of acceptable behaviour and see that it is maintained. As the host, you may be legally liable if a guest causes damage to property or another person. Let your neighbours know in advance you are going to have the party, this may reduce concerns with your neighbours over parking and noise issues.
