North Yorkshire Police Launches Christmas Campaign in Selby
5:26pm 29th November 2013
North Yorkshire Police has launched a Christmas Safety Campaign to help keep residents safe over the festive period.
Becoming a victim of crime can be especially distressing at this time of year and officers across North Yorkshire and the City of York are determined to protect our communities from harm.
Officers are combining both education and enforcement as part of the campaign which is running from the end of November until the New Year.
A Christmas Safety AllWrappedUp Smartphone app has been launched to provide instant crime prevention advice and tips on staying safe. North Yorkshire Police will also be tweeting daily crime prevention messages via their official twitter account.
The main focus of the campaign is on personal safety, protecting your property and drink and drug driving.
Chief Constable Dave Jones, of North Yorkshire Police, is urging the public to back the campaign and take the advice of officers on board.
He said: “Christmas is a time for celebration and enjoying time with family and friends, however it is important that we all take our own safety and security seriously to ensure that the festive season is as enjoyable as possible.
“Taking time to ensure that your homes and cars are secure from criminals and making sure you get home safely from nights out is especially important at this time of year.
“I hope all residents and visitors to North Yorkshire and the City of York enjoy a safe and happy Christmas season.”
North Yorkshire Police is urging residents to follow some simple crime prevention and personal safety advice to ensure they have a safe and happy Christmas.
