Police urge schoolies to celebrate safely

POLICE are urging school leavers headed to the Coffs Coast to make 'Schoolies 2014' memorable for the right reasons.

'Schoolies 2014' runs for three weeks from tomorrow, with most NSW students expected to travel from next week.

Corporate Spokesperson for Youth, Acting Deputy Commissioner Jeff Loy, reminded all school leavers to make good choices as they celebrate the end of their school career.

"Please remember, this is the start of the rest of your life," Acting Deputy Commissioner Loy said.

"It is important to think about the consequences of your actions, especially if you're drinking, because a seemingly insignificant occurrence could impact your plans for the future.

"Schoolies who are already aged 18 are an adult under the law and they need to remember anything that goes on their criminal record is forever."
