Mid-Formartine SNP councillor and vice-chairman of Grampian Police Joint Board Allan Hendry has welcomed the festive crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Aberdeenshire that will see extra police patrols across the region.

The scheme, named Operation Whalsay will run until 8 January 2011 and, in addition to the extra patrols, will also feature an awareness raising poster campaign designed to highlight seasonal personal safety messages to the public.

The operation will see the police work in partnership with a number of other public bodies and volunteer organisations. It is also being backed by some of the North-east's most prominent oil companies in a bid to ensure the message hits home.

Commenting, Councillor Hendry said:

“Anything such as extra patrols and awareness posters which are designed to deter and detect violent and anti-social behaviour are most welcome. Initiatives such as this help to instil confidence in the public when they see the Police Service being pro-active in this way.

“I am also pleased to see that local prominent oil companies are supporting this most welcome initiative by Grampian Police.”
