“As Sunday night's celebrations unfold police officers across the state will be looking to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and safe celebration,” she said.

“We will have officers out in all of the major celebration areas monitoring crowd behavior and ensuring a safe night.”

To coincide with policing at the major celebrations, officers will also be out on the state's roads.

“A major state-wide traffic operation will be in force during New Year’s Eve which will be aimed at increasing road safety and reducing road trauma,” Assistant Commissioner Fellows said.

“Police officers will be focusing on drink and drug driving along with an bad driving behavior throughout the evening and into the morning.

“You can expect to be stopped on the way to major events and breath or drug tested.

“We hope everyone has a great night and is able to spend a safe and enjoyable evening with their family and friends.”
