Safe Night Precinct support services

Safe Night Precinct Support Services (SNPSS) are a component of Queensland Government Safe Night Precincts initiative.

SNPSS contribute to creating a safer night-time environment by identifying and assisting vulnerable people who are intoxicated in the Safe Night Precincts.

SNPSS services include:

  • Mobile Patrol monitoring public spaces within the Safe Night Precinct area to identify and assist people who may be in distress and/or at risk of harm due to intoxication and/or violence.
  • Rest and Recovery spaces providing a safe place for intoxicated people and those affected by alcohol related violence, to receive support, supervision, first aid and to reduce the risk of harm to themselves or others.

SNPSS operate during the peak late-night entertainment hours on Friday and Saturday nights, (between 10pm to 4am Friday/Saturday and Saturday/Sunday). The exact operating hours for each location differ according to local characteristics.
