Condon hails Safe Night Out areas as a succcess

CENTRAL Region Assistant Commissioner Mike Condon sees the Safe Night Out precincts as a "good news story".

While he said any changes to legislation were solely up to the government, Assistant Commissioner Condon said the precincts had been a success.

"I think across the whole of the region there's been some good results," he said.

"The general feel from talking to business and local members is the behaviour has improved, but we also understand it doesn't take much to set things off where you have alcohol involved."

Liquor Enforcement and Proactive Strategies coordinator Sergeant Paul Bennett said alcohol-related behaviour always accounted for a large percentage of police calls.

"Local police continue to work across government agencies, the liquor industry and community organisation to better protect the young members of our community," he said.
