Weekend drunks cause disorder
Senior Sergeant Graeme Hill of Tokoroa police said there had been a an increase in public disorder.
Over the weekend there were nine cases of public disorder, which was a result of excessive alcohol abuse.
With the festive season upon us, Mr Hill is encouraging everyone to be more aware of how much alcohol they are consuming.
‘‘ In the lead up to the festive season people need to be more mindful of drinking to excess. Otherwise we will have more cases of people visiting the police where they will remain until they are able to leave.’’
