The measures police are adopting to keep you safe this New Year’s Eve

Michael McLaren

Police will be out in force on land, in the water and in the air to ensure the public is safe on New Year’s Eve.

Thousands of people are expected to gather around the Sydney Harbour foreshore to celebrate and bring in the New Year on Monday night.

Authorities are anticipating significant crowds and there will be a heavy police presence in and around the city.

Heavy duty bollards, trucks, buses and armed police will form a ring of steel to help protect partygoers from a vehicle-borne attack.

NSW Acting Deputy Commissioner Mark Walton tells Michael McLaren thousands of police will be on the beat on New Year’s Eve.

“We have… had to adopt some measures that keep the threat of vehicles away from crowds and pedestrians,” he says.

“Bollards and other measures are part of those temporary placements to keep people safe.”
