Derbyshire Constabulary is launching an eight-week campaign to reduce violence and domestic abuse across the country.
Operation Impact, which runs until January 31st, will focus on the prevention of these offences. A range of activities has been planned, including an increase in patrols in Derby and in major towns, licensed premises checks and the special deployment of dedicated domestic violence units.
Assistant Chief Constable Alec Wood, who is leading the operation, said: “We are determined to create safer communities by preventing violent crime and alcohol-related disorder across the county throughout the Christmas period and into the New Year.
“Our message is clear; violence of any kind will not be tolerated. We want to prevent violence and work with any victims to gather evidence and secure convictions”.
The force will be supported by several other agencies during this operation, including community safety partnerships, councils and Pubwatch.
