Police presence builds in CBD streets over protest intelligence
Police have increased their presence in the Brisbane CBD this morning over concerns there will be a protest against south-east Queensland’s lockdown.
Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski told Neil Breen he’s received “some intelligence indicating that some people do want to protest”.
“But we’re well-prepared for that.
“The message from me is just don’t do it.”
Protestors are warned they could receive a number of penalties for attending gatherings today, including fines of up to $1378 and arrest.
