Cops swoop on Schoolies

BYRON Bay will see a massive influx of police this weekend for what is predicted to be the first of two intensely busy weekends for Schoolies 2012.

The usual force of seven police officers will grow to more than 35 as Tweed Byron LAC seek to maintain a safe and harmonious environment in the Bay.

Tweed-Byron Acting Inspector Jason Dowds said Schoolies so far had seen no major incidents but crowds were starting to pick up with accommodation full in Byron from tonight onwards.

"We are hoping the good behaviour continues... high numbers of uniformed police will be in the area to act as a deterrent and combat with any alcohol related crime," Inspector Dowds said.
