Staffordshire Police – Operation Disrupt
12 July 2019 Local News
Staffordshire Police have launched a major crackdown this summer to tackle issues affecting people living in the county, including serious and violent crime and drugs.
‘Operation Disrupt’ will tackle crime and deter criminals by targeting prolific offenders who affect our communities the most or cause harm to people.
The initiative will see local officers, special constables and specialist staff drafted in from across the force to specifically target hotspot locations across the force’s ten neighbourhood policing areas including Newcastle and Stoke.
The operation will consist of highly visible hotspot policing, stop and search activity, the targeting of wanted offenders, including those using our roads network and a number of intelligence led arrests and search warrants.
Yesterday Newcastle police were out and about in the town centre as part of ‘Operation Disrupt’ with the neighbourhood policing team helping local people with an array of issues including advice on how to stay safe.
