Police from South Kolan, Gin Gin and Tactical Crime Squad also teamed up to conduct an operation at Norval Park targeting trespassing and similar offences on privately owned land during the Easter long weekend.

The operation resulted in 215 roadside breath tests conducted, three notice to appears issued and 21 traffic infringement notices issued.

Overall, police were happy with campers visiting the Norval Park area, obeying the trespassing signage on the environmental land and respecting the land and wildlife by not leaving rubbish behind.

Sergeant Matthew Swan from South Kolan Police said working with neighbouring divisions was the key to success for this weekend.

"The collaborative approach between the neighbouring divisions is directly reflected in the low number of offences detected given the amount of families on the road over the weekend," he said.

Police will continue to conduct proactive patrols in the area into the cooler months to ensure the continued support of members of the public using the Norval Park area.
