High visibility Policing over Festive Period

HIGH visibility Police Officers will be patrolling the City Centre during the festive period as part of an ongoing reassurance operation. Officers from the Mounted Police Section, together with Armed Response Officers, Constables and Police community support Officers (PCSO's) will be visible around the Christmas attractions, including the markets, as part of Operation Exemplar, a new, highly visible tactic used to tackle all forms of criminality, including terrorism, whilst engaging with the public to encourage them to report suspicious activity. Superintendent Mark Wiggins said:- "Visitors to the City can expect to see more high visibility Policing within the City Centre, in the run up to Christmas. This is not in response to any direct threat but just to ensure visitors to the City Centre feel reassured that they can go about their business and enjoy the festive attractions that the City has got to offer. Most major Police Forces in the UK will be deploying their staff in a similar fashion and we know when this has been done on Merseyside on previous occasions we have received positive feedback from the public. Where and when we deploy to is designed to be unpredictable and show that we can turn up in a location anytime so it sends a strong message to criminals intent on causing harm that they should think again or risk being caught. The public have a big part to play in helping us gather the information we need to tackle all types of crime, from pick pocketing to terrorism and Operation Exemplar is a vital way of getting that message across. I would encourage people to engage with our staff when they see them and feel confident to raise any concerns they may have so that we can address them."
