Police warn revellers to show respect on Anzac Day

REVELLERS commemorating Anzac Day this month are being reminded that police will be conducting regualar walkthroughs of licensed premises.

"Police would expect that patrons would respect the importance of this day and behave in a manner that does not disrespect the honour of our fallen," Tweed Byron police said in a statement.

"Officers ask that patrons involved in the playing of "Two Up" to abide by the guidelines set by licencees and managers of the premises in which they are held.

"While this is an important day for Australia, police ask that patrons at licensed premise do not overdo their consumption of alcohol and place themselves and the licensed premise at risk.

"Let's all remember our fallen by showing them the respect that they have rightly earned by their sacrifice and behave in a manner that does not reflect badly on the day."
