If you’re out on the town this weekend, expect to see more officers out on the beat.
Police will be out in CCTV vans and closely inspecting cameras at local bars, clubs and restaurants to ensure revellers enjoy a peaceful night out.
It follows numerous operations launched by police across Huddersfield in recent months, with special efforts to target drugs and firearms offenders. The operations have resulted in dozens of arrests and drugs and weapons worth hundreds of thousands of pounds removed from our streets.
Inspector James Kitchen, of Huddersfield Neighbourhood Police Team, said: “We have launched this operation in a direct response to the issues which have been raised by the residents of Huddersfield and those who come to the town centre to enjoy themselves and want to be part of a safe and vibrant community.
“We are committed to preventing any sort of criminality in Huddersfield town centre to ensure everyone living and visiting feels safer.”
