176 Arrests At Edinburgh Festival
More than 170 people were arrested by officers policing this year's Edinburgh Festival.
Figures published for August show 156 people were arrested for crimes including drugs, theft, robbery and assault.
A further 20 people were held for various warrant offences by the festival policing team.
Officers carried out high-visibility patrols and visited licensed premises throughout the month-long Edinburgh International Festival and Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world.
Chief inspector Bob Paris said: "With another spectacular festival now behind us, I would like to commend the vast majority of the city's visitors and local residents for their outstanding conduct and support of our policing operation.
"During this month, local resources have been supported by colleagues from across Scotland to help deliver vital crime prevention advice to the public and to address the regular crime trends we observe during periods of increased footfall within Edinburgh.
"I would like to thank our colleagues from across Police Scotland and our business partners in the city, the Festival and Fringe societies, as well as the City of Edinburgh Council and the SafeZone Bus for all of their support throughout the Edinburgh Festival."
