Police to get stuck into operation
IT isnot the popular smoko snack but the new operation police will be conducting from tomorrow, June 4, until June 13.
Emerald police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Graeme Reeves said Operation Pies would be concentrating on traffic-related offences.
“Police will be concentrating on static random breath testing, speed radar and heavy vehicle intercepts,” he said.
“We will further be assisted by the Department of Transport targeting hoon vehicles during the course of this operation.”
With Queensland Week coinciding with the operation, Snr Sgt Reeves said police would be focusing their attention on Floodfest tomorrow afternoon at the AgGrow site.
“Police are requesting people wishing to participate in this event to make use of the free bus transport to alleviate traffic concerns and especially if they are wanting to have alcoholic drinks,” he said.
“It will be a great event for the town and we are not expecting any trouble.
“Please travel to and from the event safely.”
