Water police

Local Riverland boaties are being urged to play it safe this Easter holiday period with marine safety officers to be patrolling across the state.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure have said If you are heading out on the water, be boat smart and boat safe – wear your lifejacket, check safety equipment and let someone know before you go.

DPTI Manager for Maritime Safety Gordon Panton said “Most boaters don’t mean to break the rules, but the rules are there for the safety of boaters and others on board,”
