DRINK in a non-designated area and expect to pay, as police patrols increase to prevent the consumption of alcohol in public places.

A police spokesman confirmed that patrols during arrival and departure times at Emerald airport were being increased.

“Police will be enforcing compliance with the Liquor Act to ensure people are drinking within designated areas,” he said.

“Police advise patrons that the Emerald airport is a public area and laws relating to drinking in public still apply.”
