Police pleased with your Australia Day behaviour

By johnboy - 27 January 2011 5

ACT Policing is pleased with behaviour at Australia Day events yesterday (Wednesday, 26 January) at Commonwealth Place.

During the course of the day ACT Policing apprehended six juveniles for alcohol-related incidents, and a further five children were taken into protective custody due lack of appropriate supervision.

Operation Commander, Sergeant David Williams said that he was pleased to see Canberrans enjoying Australia Day festivities with minimal disruption.

“It was a great atmosphere with thousands of Canberra families enjoying the festivities. We were happy with the crowd behaviour,” Sergeant Williams said.

ACT Policing Traffic Operations detected three drivers who exceeded the 0.05 limit. Police arrested a 21-year-old Chisholm man after contravening the conditions of his special license and providing a positive sample of 0.151.

Traffic Operations members also detected a 19-year-old Holt man, who holds a provisional license exceeding the speed limit by 67km/h along William Hovell Drive. The man was detected travelling at 157km/h in a 90km/h zone.

How come we never hear more of this? How often do young alcohol-affected people gather at public places like shops on a weekend, yet we never seem to hear of them being arrested for alcohol offences or lack of appropriate supervision. Is this a new law as part of the alcohol reforms, or only one trotted out when its time for a good PR excercise on a holiday?

Because if there was a media release every time a drunken teenager was taken into custody, the Canberra Times would be about 200 pages a day and Win news would be two hours long.

How could teens possibly be drunk?? They’re too young to drink!
