Nine arrests in one night in Illawarra

Feb 23, 2017News

Last Saturday nine people were arrested for transport offences in just nine hours in the Illawarra. Police also gave nine ‘move on’ directions, issued 55 rail infringement notices and gave four field court attendance notices for drug possession.

Saturday’s crackdown was part of NSW Police’s ‘Operation Colossus’ which aims to clean up public transport.

We’re hoping the high number of offences will help authorities understand just how dangerous our daily working environment can be, especially on night shifts.
