Banding together to make for a safe night out

A coward punch, a groping at a nightclub and numerous public nuisance offences have kicked off the first weekend of the Safe Night Out strategy in Flinders Street East.

The strategy marks the latest step in Townsville police’s fight against drunken violence in the city’s drinking hot-spots.

The $44.5 million strategy comes after the end of the Drink Safe Precinct, and has tougher new tools for police to deal with street violence.

The area covered under the new campaign has been extended to the Casino and Hotel Allen.
