& # 39; ANZAC Day is an opportunity for the community to come together and recognize the courage and sacrifice of our soldiers and women, both in the present and in the past, and that is exactly what Sydney did today.
& # 39; It was great to see how the ANZAC spirit was shown, with crowds of veterans, their families and community members marching in, both safe and successful.
& # 39; The police responded to a few isolated incidents, but was pleased that crowds could pay their respects appropriately on one of the most important national days of the country.
& # 39; A reminder of those who still love the afternoon to act responsibly, know your limits and watch out for your friends who might be drunk & # 39 ;, said Acting Assistant Commissioner Cooke.
The police operation remains in force throughout the evening.
