Special initiatives

We undertake a number of special initiatives which not only allow us to engage with our community but also help tackle our priorities.

  • Operation Bright is our dark nights campaign which focusses on preventing burglary dwellings in vulnerable premises.
  • Operation Buckeroo works in partnership with local rangers and concentrates on preventing vehicle crime at beauty spot locations.
  • Our “Ring the Changes” initiative prevents fraudulent activity amongst local businesses such as shops and banks.
  • Our pub watch scheme works with licenses to reduce night time economy issues.
  • Our Anti Fraud and Scam initiative in partnership with Barclays Bank to educate customers about fraud and scam’s frequently used by criminals particularly toward the elderly and vulnerable.
