Send in the taskforce: councillor

A prominent councillor says if necessary, the police taskforce should be deployed to keep the peace in town camps: "We must not return to the situation where police are kept out of the camps after dark and needed permits to enter," says Cr Steve Brown (pictured).
Cr Brown, who had the highest vote in the recent council elections, was commenting after a riot in Hidden Valley Town Camp on Wednesday, when it was alleged rioters attacked police, released prisoners from a paddy wagon and smashed police vehicles. Police were also attacked and injured during a melee in Hidden Valley in May.

39 Arrests in Alice Springs

Police in Alice Springs arrested 39 people in the 24 hours until 7am today.

The larger than usual number of arrests was due to additional policing support provided by Operation Shiloh members.
Superintendent Matt Hollamby said 16 arrests were as a result of drink driving. Six of those were high range

"Five were arrested for aggravated assault, one for causing serious harm and six for breach of bail.

“Three people were arrested for breaching their Domestic Violence Orders and the remainder for drug and warrant related incidents.
“The scary part about this is it does not include the number of people apprehended for protective custody or issued with a Notice to Appear or Summary Infringement Notice.

"These are just the people who were charged with offences."
Police tested 188 drivers at six Random Breath Testing Stations throughout the town and surrounding areas.
“Four returned a low reading, seven a medium reading and five a high reading, the highest of those was 0.217%," says Supt Hollamby.
“Eight Summary Infringement Notices and Traffic Infringement Notices were also given and 156 litres of alcohol was destroyed.

“I continue to urge anyone who may witness suspicious behaviour, anti-social and criminal behaviour including drink drivers, to report it to Police on 131 444."
