Friday 10-May-2019 12:51

Officers from the Social Order Unit seized 54 litres of alcohol from an alcohol protected area in Ludmilla yesterday as part of ongoing operations by the Alcohol Policing Division to reduce alcohol related harm in the community.

Overall, 110 litres of alcohol was seized from public and protected areas in the Darwin region yesterday.

Acting Superintendent Crispin Gargan of the Alcohol Policing Division said it’s very concerning that people would simply disregard the regulations around an alcohol protected area.

“The Alcohol Policing Division will continue to target the drivers of alcohol related harm in the community,”’ he said.

Anyone with information on alcohol in alcohol protected areas is asked to notify police on 131444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
