“We will conduct targeted preventive patrols across the country, liaise with companies and licensees for security advice, and continue our day-to-day crime-dealing business.”
Ch Supt Middleton said the operation will also focus on fighting drinks and helping victims of domestic violence.
She added, “This year there has been a particular focus on violence against women and girls and during our operation we will be increasing our presence in the nightlife areas and working with the hospitality industry to address issues such as beverage restocking and health support .
“We will also take active steps to support all victims of domestic violence. In the past, we have seen an increase in domestic violence incidents during the Christmas season. We want all victims to know we are here. Do not suffer in silence. Call us on 101 or 999 in an emergency. “
