Police Scotland is reporting positive results from a month of festive patrols across North Aberdeenshire.
In Formartine, patrols did 95 licensed premises checks across the Ellon/Turriff areas with only 7 incidents reported within those premises.
Chief Inspector Rob Sturton, Area Commander for Aberdeenshire North said
These results are extremely positive. In addition to the Officers involved, I thank our Partners & the public who helped ensure that North Aberdeenshire continues to be recognised as a great place to live, work and visit & that all ages have been able to enjoy this family focused time of year. Our work with partners within Aberdeenshire Council Criminal Justice Social Work & Licensing Standards Departments & the Integrated Substance Misuse Service, and a diverse range of activity undertaken across the area are key to our efforts.
Banff’s Operation Hill, Operation Salvation, funded by Aberdeenshire Council, which saw Officers on patrol across the North East preventing violence & antisocial behavior whilst diverting and supporting individuals away from committing acts of violence, & Formartine’s Operations Illustrious and Abacablue antisocial behaviour initiatives will all endure in the New Year as we continue to be visible in your communities.
