Officers attached to Brisbane Water Police District have assisted NSW Police with the closing of the state’s border with Victoria.

A spokesperson for the District said a small team of officers made the trip to the border to assist with closing duties at crossing stations around the state.

“Some of our colleagues at incredibly short notice travelled south last week and assisted with duties on Victorian border crossings and we are continuing to assist in coming weeks.

With some officers assisting at a rural crossing near Jindabyne, the spokesperson said many have reported on some of the differences between their old beat and new assignment.

“We are told it was a gorgeous work backdrop with quite different scenery and temperatures to Brisbane Water, with max reached of only 5 degrees in the middle of the day.

“We are told the fire (pictured) kept them toastie.

“Well done ladies and gents,” the spokesperson said.
