Warwickshire Police to have more officers on duty over the busy festive period
Main article content
The force has identified nights over the festive period that are likely to be some of the busiest of the year. These nights will see extra officers on the streets and extra officers to process prisoners.
Chief Inspector Steve Beard is leading the Christmas policing operation this year. He said: “We expect some of the nights over Christmas to be extremely busy in the pubs and clubs across the county. We’ll have extra officers on the streets to help people stay safe and we’ll have other extra officers on duty to help take care of those who don’t behave themselves.
"We know the vast majority of people will go out, have a good time and go home safely. Unfortunately, as we all know, there’s a minority of people who don’t stay in control and cause trouble; we will not hesitate to take action to address this type of behaviour.
“Our main advice to people going out celebrating this Christmas is know your limits, stay in control and look out for your mates.
“If one of your mates is looking for trouble get them home before we need to intervene.”
