Cheshire Police says it not stand for anyone intent on committing crime or causing harm this Christmas.

The force is issuing a clear warning to anyone thinking of committing crime or causing harm across the county this Christmas - that officers will take action.

The warning comes as the Constabulary launches a month-long operation which will see officers targeting perpetrators of anti-social behaviour, violence, domestic abuse and drink and drug driving.

This particularly focused on the night-time economy hot spot areas with high impact policing activity.

Police will also be educating the public on the consequences of their actions with a high visibility campaign.

The campaign will show the public a possible two options on how they can spend their Christmas.

This is either having a good time celebrating with family and friends, or a lonely one locked up and spent with officers – leaving them with the choice on how they are going to spend theirs.

Head of local policing for Cheshire Constabulary, Chief Superintendent Peter Crowcroft, told Nub News: "We want people to have a great Christmas with friends and family.

"But, we absolutely will not stand for anyone intent on causing harm in our communities and ruining it for everyone else – and having too much alcohol is not an excuse for unacceptable behaviour."

"We want people to see our campaign and make the right choice.

"If you behave safely and responsibly you can have a great Christmas.

"However, if you choose to commit crime - even after we have warned you on the consequences of doing so - then you will have no-one to blame but yourself.

"It is not ok for good people to suffer at the hands of criminals - especially at Christmas - and there is no place in Cheshire for people to commit crime and cause harm."

There will be extra measures put in place across Cheshire to help keep people safe.

High visibility operations will take place throughout December in targeted areas across the county with local officers doing all they can to ensure communities are free from criminal activity.

There will also be specially trained officers deployed to identify and tackle predatory behaviours such as harassment, loitering without reason and stalking behaviour.

Chief Superintendent Crowcroft said: "I want to reassure people that we remain resolute in our pursuit of those who believe they are above the law.

"We will make sure they are held accountable for the crimes they have committed, and the harm they have caused.

"Our streets are safe, our roads are safe, our night-time economy is safe – until someone makes it not safe.

"This is not something we are going to accept in Cheshire, and we will do all we can to prevent and disrupt crime occurring in the county."

Police and Crime Commissioner, John Dwyer, added: "The messaging behind this Christmas campaign is so important and the Constabulary's stance is very clear.

"If you choose to commit crime or harm in Cheshire then you will be made to face the consequences of your actions, which is a stance I firmly share.
