A safe night in Rocky, to be sure

ST Patrick's Day revellers have been warned to behave tomorrow in Rockhampton.

Police said they would be out in force in the CBD tomorrow night, with increased traffic patrols also operating.

The measures are part of Operation Termite, a police operation to crack down on anti-social behaviour.

Rockhampton police Inspector Darren Somerville said violence would not be tolerated.

"Everyone has the right to expect a safe and peaceful night out when attending the nightclub precinct," Insp Somerville said.

"Violence at licensed premises at any time will not be tolerated and police will take appropriate action."

Insp Somerville said police were hoping their presence would assist people in making good judgment calls in relation to their behaviour.

He said police would like to remind the public of the "One Punch Can Kill" campaign, which is about trying to stop people from making poor split-second decisions which could ruin their own lives or the lives of others.
