Police target booze fuelled crime

A campaign to tackle alcohol-related crime across North Wales is underway.

Over the next week, North Wales Police will work with all the local authorities to do things like test purchases and visiting 'hot spot' areas.

They are also asking you to contact them if you know of places where youngsters hang out and drink in public.

Superintendent Jeremy Vaughan, Head of Confidence and Community Safety said: "We believe that by working together to tackle the issues that matter to our communities we can have a positive effect.

"While there will be an emphasis upon police-led enforcement activities, I wish to stress that all six local authorities and Community Safety Partnerships will be involved.

"All communities throughout North Wales also have a role to play in supporting our joint activities and in particular passing on information about such issues as underage sales and where young people are gathering and drinking in public places.

He added: "Although this campaign will run for two weeks, we would like to emphasise that throughout the year, police and partners are committed to tackling alcohol-related crime. The public of North Wales can be assured that we are doing everything we can to make North Wales an even safer place to work, live and visit."
