Secretary of State Mark Ryan and Deputy Commissioner Brian Codd thanked the Queensland community for their endorsement in late 2020.
Police Secretary Mark Ryan said the safety of Queenslanders and COVID-19 from our communities remains a top priority for the Palaszczuk government.
« I remain encouraged and grateful for the understanding and support Queenslanders have shown again and again in 2020 during this unprecedented global pandemic, » said Secretary Ryan.
“Thanks to their dedication to protecting their families, communities and themselves from COVID-19, Queensland has shown itself to be remarkably resilient when it comes to weathering whatever got our way in 2020. ”
“This year there will be some changes to the way Queensland celebrates and welcomes the New Year.
“People across Queensland should check with local authorities to see if there are fireworks.
« I am asking Queenslanders to celebrate and enjoy their New Years Eve, but in a COVID-safe manner. Maintain social distance and wear a face mask if this cannot be safely achieved and stay home if you are sick. « .
« I would also like to sincerely thank our Frontline Services for their exceptional efforts in this exceptional year, » said Secretary Ryan.
Deputy Commissioner Codd recognized the invaluable support the QPS has received from its local communities, particularly from frontline officers, during a very difficult and challenging year.
“I would like to thank the Queensland community for understanding, supporting, and supporting the QPS in 2020.
« During this ongoing global pandemic that posed so many challenges to people and communities around the world, tough decisions have been made to keep the Queenslanders safe.
“Queenslanders have come together as communities to try to keep COVID-19 out of our lives and they have all done a great job.
“I am also very proud of the work of all members of the QPS in their commitment to the safety of Queenslanders. COVID-19 has called on our resources and we have faced this challenge together. I would also like to acknowledge the significant contributions made by our partners, including the National Ambulance Service, Queensland Health, the Department of Transportation and Major Roads, and the Australian Armed Forces. ”
Deputy Commissioner Codd said while the New Years Eve fireworks display would not be part of the celebrations this year, Queenslanders could safely celebrate and greet in 2021.
“Remember to play it safe – enjoy New Year’s Eve, celebrate with family and friends, but always remember to keep social distance and good hygiene. ”
The deputy commissioner said contract tracking remains an important tool in the fight against COVID-19 and urged Queenslanders not to forget to provide their New Years Eve details.
« We have gone too far for parties to make bad decisions. Just stop and see how you can celebrate and maintain COVID safety, ”said Deputy Commissioner Codd.
Acting chief superintendent Chris Stream, New Year’s Eve commander for the Brisbane area, said although the Brisbane fireworks display wouldn’t take place this year, he still expects a busy night.
“The police will be on duty across Queensland to make New Years Eve 2020 a safe evening for anyone who is not tolerant of anti-social behavior and alcohol-related violence.
“We will do our part to keep the Queenslanders safe, but individuals must do their part too. Think about what you are doing, how much you are drinking, and how to get home safely. Plan ahead – make sure New Year’s Eve is a night to remember for all the right and not the wrong reasons, ”the acting Chief Superintendent told Stream.
