‘Significant reduction’ in Moomba-related crime, despite vision of ugly brawls

But police said there’d been a “significant reduction” in crime, compared with previous Moomba weekends.
“The footage is confronting, I don’t want to downplay that for a second,” Commander Tim Hansen told Neil Mitchell.
“It’s not the sort of behaviour we welcome in the CBD.”
