Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District have laid more than a dozen charges during a high-visibility operation on the state’s Far North Coast.
Operation Titan was conducted over a two-day period every month since June 2019, with the aim of engaging with the community through face-to-face interactions and high-saturation policing.
During last weekend’s Operation Titan, the following results were achieved:
• Three people were arrested for a range of offences, including driving and drug offences;
• 14 charges were issued;
• 26 bail checks were conducted;
• 23 business inspections were conducted;
• One person was charged with mid-range PCA; and
• Six AVO compliance checks were conducted.
Of note, a 32-year-old woman, was charged with several traffic and drug offences following an alleged police pursuit around Tweed Heads on Saturday 12 October. She was refused bail to face Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday 2 December 2019.
Tweed/Byron Police District Crime Manager, Detective Chief Inspector Brendon Cullen said Operation Titan continues to deliver results for the region, allowing police to target offenders while also engaging with the public.
“Operation Titan is another way in which we are able to reduce crime and target problem areas and issues – each deployment has a main focus.
“We are disrupting drug supply, making our roads safer, and we are communicating with locals on the streets, trying to strip back policing to the basics and break the crime cycle from the very beginning,” Det Chief Inspector Cullen said.
Operation Titan will continue as a monthly deployment throughout the Tweed/Byron Police District.
