Operation Rudolph tackles opportunistic crime to help keep our communities safe over the holiday period.
It is a force-wide effort. Officers from our Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPT) will be proactively working with licenced premises and retailers to provide advice on crime prevention measures, and will patrol their communities at peak times as a deterrent to thieves who may try to take advantage of busy shopping centres and supermarkets.
