New Years Eve celebrations can be extremely fun and exciting; however, it's important to take some precautions to be sure that you, your friends and family stay safe during all the commotion. We've also received some important news from the local police that you should be aware of. 

Firstly, please be careful as you're out and about as drunk driving is rife on this joyous occasion. Intoxicated pedestrians or bicyclists are also something to keep an eye out for. Just because someone isn't driving a car doesn't mean they can't also be dangerous.

Increased Police Presence

The police have informed us that they will be out in full force tonight to help maintain a safe and peaceful night. It will be double their usual force! Keep your eyes open, stay with friends, and avoid situations that may lead to violence or tension.

Countdown Activities Forbidden

We've just been informed that the police have been notified that countdown activities for the new year are forbidden in public places.  How exactly this will be enforced or penalized has not been made clear and no further details have yet been provided. If you're looking for a safe place to enjoy the new year celebrations, here's a list.

Carry your papers

Be sure to carry your passport/registration papers to avoid any unnecessary trips to the police station. If you're stopped by the police, please cooperate. As long as you're immigration status is in order the process will go quickly and smoothly. Here are the rules and requirements in case you're not aware.

Protect Your Valuables

Watch out for pickpockets! Nights like tonight are a dream for pickpockets that want to take advantage of intoxicated people or those who are distracted. Keep a close eye on your valuables. It's best to keep your wallets and cash in pockets others can't easily reach.

Don't embarrass yourself

Last but not least, be careful what you post on Social Media. We all have to return to normal life soon and the last thing we need is our employer or future employer seeing something from tonight's festivities online later that could have a negative impact on our lives.

CALL 110

If you run into any trouble or issues, the number for the police is 110.


We look forward to enjoying an amazing 2018 with you!
