“There were drug dogs at the entrances and opportunities to place illegal substances and weapons in handing bins, as well as a thorough search process by security personnel at the entrances to the site.

“A conscious effort was made to target those who intended to supply illegal substances at the event, which accounted for more than half of the arrests made, while we used other options available to us, such as community resolutions, for a lower level. offences.

“All those who have been arrested and are being investigated for drug-related offenses will now have to face the consequences and pay the price for their actions.”
