Doomadgee police are reminding the community an Alcohol Management Plan remains in place.
From May 1 to 16, police have charged 11 Doomadgee residents with alcohol-related offences, including possession of restricted liquor and attempted entry with restricted liquor.
A significant amount of alcohol has been seized by police, totalling thousands of dollars in value.
One vehicle has also been seized in relation to offences against the Liquor Act.
Doomadgee is a declared restricted area under Schedule 1B of the Liquor Regulation 2002.
Under the Liquor Act and Regulations, everyone in Doomadgee is restricted to possessing 22.5 litres (2 cartons or 60 x 375 ml cans) of beer with an alcohol content of less than 4 per cent. No other liquor is permitted.
Doomadgee Acting Officer in Charge, Acting Senior Sergeant John Fowles said local police have strict measures in place to maintain community safety and wellbeing.
"A sharp increase in violence and alcohol related offending has been seen in Doomadgee in a short time and this violence and blatant disregard for the Alcohol Management Plan will result in people receiving court notices," Acting Senior Sergeant John Fowles said.
The Queensland Government is committed to working with remote and discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on a renewed approach to alcohol management which prioritises community safety, particularly for children, women and the elderly.
Under the renewed approach, the Queensland Government will work with local community leadership to enforce current alcohol carriage limits, explore changes to the alcohol carriage limits on a case-by-case basis and revise Alcohol Management Plans to reflect community decisions.
Additionally, the Queensland Government is partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander councils and community leaders to design, develop and implement locally-led safety plans which address access to sly-grog and homebrew, promote healthy attitudes towards alcohol and improve safety and wellbeing.
