TIPS IF YOU ARE PLAN TO HAVE A PARTY

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

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. Try to regis­ter your party about two weeks be­fore hand on­line at www.police.qld.gov.au/party.
