Summer season policing update

1 Mins read

Police have swung their summer season policing plans into place with warm weather since Easter brining north coast visitors out in droves.

Inspector Tony Boyce said: ”The priority of local police is to keep people safe, both visitors and residents alike. The north coast is a busy place which is good for the local economy and small businesses. With an increased temporary population comes a specific policing operation, right across the summer months.

“Since Easter, our officers have been meeting the challenges of the summer season. We are committed to keeping people safe and each suspect brought before the courts is a small job well done.

“For example, on Easter Monday we arrested two sixteen year olds who were attempting to set fire to gorse along the East Strand sand dunes in Portrush. Easter Monday also saw a well-publicised and large alcohol seizure from underage drinkers.

“Those responsible for damaging security fencing at West Strand were also arrested by officers at the end of March. And, we made an arrest for the theft of a lap top from an unlocked vehicle recently.

“I would thank the north coast public for their continued support. Please continue to provide information on suspicious activity or local crimes to us where you can. I am looking forward to a busy and safe north coast summer season which delivers for local businesses, residents and visitors alike.”
