Crack­down on violence

The Oban Times - - News -

A THREE-MONTH na­tional cam­paign to crack down on sum­mer violence was launched by Po­lice Scot­land yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day June 28).

The Scot­land-wide cam­paign will tackle al­co­hol-re­lated violence, of­fen­sive weapons, dis­or­der and anti- so­cial be­hav­iour and will be de­liv­ered by lo­cal po­lice di­vi­sions which will tar­get hot spots spe­cific to their lo­cal violence pro­file.

Po­lice Scot­land aims to re­duce public space violence, dis­or­der and anti-so­cial be­hav­iour through ef­fec­tive de­ploy­ment of re­sources, pre­ven­tion tech­niques, en­force­ment op­er­a­tions and ed­u­ca­tion and aware­ness ac­tiv­ity. This means di­vi­sions will use en­hanced in­tel­li­gence-led polic­ing and pre­dic­tive anal­y­sis tools to iden­tify root causes of dis­or­der at a lo­cal level and di­rect re­sources to specif­i­cally tackle the peo­ple in­volved in those crimes in the right time and place.
