Operation Unite was conducted over the weekend throughout Australia and New Zealand. Operation Unite is a joint initiative of Police Commissioners across Australia and New Zealand. Its focus is to “highlight the broader implications associated with alcohol misuse in public locations, including crime and anti-social behaviour, health and injury problems and subsequent impact on policing”.
