Superintendent Roptell reiterated the 20 person maximum rule, to be inside a home at any one time.
“This includes short-stay accommodation,” he said, “the orders also state that up to 30 people can be gathered in a public space at any one time, this includes places such as parks, beaches.
“Police want to remind school leavers that we aren’t here to ruin the fun – our officers are here to protect you and keep you safe; approach police or authorities if you are in danger, if you feel threatened or you are a victim of any type of crime.
“Not only will police be ensuring Public Health Orders are being followed, but officers will be targeting drug and alcohol-related crime, as well as anti-social behaviour.
“Drugs and alcohol impairs your judgement and can lead to risky behaviours or choices which can impact the rest of your life. Know your limits and look out for your mates.”
