Police praise community for respect on Anzac Day

WHILE a navy officer returning from an Anzac Day service in Sydney has been bashed by one of a group of men on a train, it was a different story on the Fraser Coast.  

Maryborough police Senior Constable Christopher Helsdon said besides a public nuisance and evade police, Anzac Day got the respect it deserves. 

A vehicle was pulled up on two occasions and took off from police the second time. 

A learner driver was caught the first time with an unlicensed passenger and that same passenger, a 27-year-old Maryborough man, evaded police when caught driving later in the night. 

He is known to police. 

At 11.30pm a 29-year-old was given a ticket and banning order after he 'played up' at the Hervey Bay RSL.

Snr Const Helsdon said the community was generally well behaved and thanked the Fraser Coast for their respect. 

"We have a few ex-military police officers and they're proud the community was well behaved," Snr Const Helsdon said.
