Halloween anti-social behaviour crackdown

SOLIHULL police will be looking to crack down on anti-social behaviour over Halloween and Bonfire Night

SOLIHULL police will be looking to crack down on anti-social behaviour over Halloween and Bonfire Night

This week, the force launched Operation Tranquillity – an initiative which aims to clamp down on nuisance behaviour, which often rises at this time of year.

And over the past few days, Solihull officers and council officials went door-knocking to hand out information and answer questions. Solihull Chief Supt Carl Foulkes added: “People of all ages become involved in anti-social behaviour and part of our campaign will be targeted at parents because during the holidays children have more time on their hands and sometimes have less adult supervision. As a result, it can be easy for them to unintentionally become involved in anti-social behaviour.”

Across the Midlands as a whole, the police will be making sure that vulnerable people are not intimidated by “trick or treaters” and reducing illegal/anti-social firework use. As part of Operation Tranquillity, police have issued this poster for residents to put in their window if they want to keep “trick or treaters” at bay.
