Officer in Charge of Nhulunbuy Police, Senior Sergeant Daniel Whitfield-Jones said the community wanted to maintain order and enhance community amenity, social harmony and wellbeing. As a harm reduction initiative, police, in collaboration with all licenced premises in Nhulunbuy, were able to negotiate a reduction in takeaway hours and supply amounts.
“The initiative was a tremendous success, with no domestic violence or other alcohol-related violence or antisocial behaviour being recorded over the weekend. We would like to thank the community for their support during this period,” he said.
“This is a great example of what our community can achieve when we all work together.”
