State-wide crime blitz sees 440 charges laid

QUEENSLAND police concluded Operation Unite last night, with more than 441 charges laid across the state.

The operation was aimed at drawing attention to implications associated with alcohol misue in public locations, crime and anti-social behaviour, health and injury problems and how that had impacted on policing.

More than 1257 uniformed and plain-clothed police officers wre involved in the state wide operation.

28 people across Queensland were arrested for assault offences.

Police also attended to 912 licensing breaches and submitted 99 liquor incident reports.

Police conducted 7150 random breath tests with 119 people being nabbed for drink driving.

Deputy Commissioner for Specialist Operations Ross Barnett said people needed to think about their own behaviour before a big night out.

"Our message is be safe. Go out, have a good time, but don't let your fun get out of control, and when you are drinking, do not drive," he said.
