Published: Wed 27 Dec 2023 06:33 PM
New Zealand Police reminds those attending Rhythm and Alps this New Year to take care of themselves and their friends, be sensible and make sure everyone gets home safely.
Always have a plan on how to get to and from an event safely. Have a plan b and keep an eye on your alcohol consumption, always eat something substantial if you are planning to drink and encourage your friends to do the same.
Watch your drinks and don’t accept drinks you haven’t seen poured, the last thing you want is somebody tampering with your drink.
We all have a responsibility to ensure our friends and whanau are safe this summer, so keep an eye out and report any concerns you have.
Having your valuables stolen can ruin your celebrations. If you are taking a car to the festival, make sure all valuables are kept out of sight, all doors are locked, and the windows are up. Keep your phone, keys and wallet in a safe place that is unlikely to easily fall out of a pocket.
If you feel unsafe or have concerns about dangerous, illegal or suspicious behaviour, call Police on 111, for non-urgent concerns you can call 105 or visit https://www.police.govt.nz/use-105 and report the incident online.
During New Year we often see a peak in people driving on the roads, so be patient, keep calm, drive sober and if you are feeling tired – pull over.
All drivers will be breath-tested as they leave the event.
