Police influx for New Year’s

POLICE members will increase across South Gippsland during New Year’s Eve celebrations tomorrow night (Wednesday).

Police will keep a close eye on party goers to ensure crowds behave as well as last year.

“We have quite good police coverage planned this year,” Wonthaggi’s Acting Senior Sergeant Andy O’Brien said.

“The crowds are getting better year by year and we hope to see it continue.

“If everyone remembers the laws about drinking in the streets, we should have no problems.”

Police from Melbourne will be coming down specifically to watch over party hot spot, Cowes. Police from Latrobe will be coming to monitor Inverloch.

While the main focus is on Cowes and Inverloch, members will be allocated throughout the Bass Coast police service area.

Units will even be covering small party areas, including Tidal River.

“Come enjoy what this part of the world has to offer but be mindful of the laws,” Acting Senior Sergeant O’Brien said.

Inverloch and Coronet Bay will be hosting fireworks displays this year.

Both displays will light up the sky at 9.30pm. There will not be fireworks at Cowes or Waratah Bay this year.

People with illegal fireworks will face court.
