Since commencing on April 2, a total of 1,035 people have been charged with 2,395 offences as part of Operation Whiskey Legion.

Operation Whiskey Legion is a state-wide initiative aimed at improving community safety through proactive enforcement and engagement.

The operation brings a surge capacity of specialist police from Highway Patrol, Crime and Intelligence Command, Rail Squad, Water Police, Dog Squad and Crime Prevention to work alongside local police focusing on high-risk off enders and hot spot areas across police districts.

Moreton District Officer Acting Chief Superintendent Adam Guild said his crews are looking to replicate the already successful operation in Moreton.

“We look forward to the additional resources to build upon the great work local officers are already delivering, so we can look at crime from every angle.”
