Whether it is individuals or businesses illegally supplying liquor, we need to make sure it is reported immediately to police.

When you see this happening on the weekend, this has a direct correlation to the intoxicated youths who yell profanities and smash bottles sometimes into the early hours of the morning.

Juveniles purchasing liquor and those that purchase liquor on behalf of juveniles are liable for a $2000 fine.

Licensees and managers are also liable for a fine of $10,000 and other staff a fine of $2000.

If you have information on anyone supplying alcohol to youths, please call police on 131444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
