Victoria police get extra search powers
A crackdown on drunkenness and violence will continue in Victoria with new laws brought in today, including extra powers for police to strip search people for weapons.
Police can also issue $234 on-the-spot fines for people who refuse to leave pubs and clubs when asked.
The new laws come after the nationally-coordinated Operation Unite police crackdown on alcohol-related violence across Australia and New Zealand last weekend.
Under the new search laws, police will be able to declare designated areas for searches if they have a history of violence involving weapons, or they believe such an incident is about to take place.
They will be able to stop and search a person without a warrant in the areas, such as train stations or city blocks.
The areas will be designated for a 12-hour period only and, by law, must be advertised in a government gazette and newspaper seven days in advance.
