Operation Unite is a combined policing operation conducted across Australia and New Zealand focusing on alcohol misuse, violence and anti-social behaviour. The intention of the operation is to draw attention to the broader implications associated with alcohol misuse in public locations, including crime and anti-social behaviour, health and injury problems and subsequent impact on policing and communities.
