New Year Operation

SHP alcohol ban still in place

The liquor ban operations in the province will continue on into the New Year celebrations and festivities.

Southern Highlands Provincial Police commander Sibron Potape says the ban was imposed by the provincial government in 2010 and still stands.

Police will not accept anyone found with any form of alcohol in or around the communities.

Anyone caught to be in possession of any sort of alcohol will face a fine of K1,000 or serve one year in prison.

Turi says New Year police operations in place

The operations will consist of the usual foot beat patrols as well as the usual road checks and random car stops by patrol units.

Turi urges all city residents to work together with police while the operations run through into the New Year.

Turi is also warning the general public to take heed of the operations and to co-operate with police to ensure that the New Year celebrations are peaceful.

Meanwhile, he commended his officers for a job well done during the Christmas operations and that the same work attitude be carried into the operations for New Year as well.
