FALL IN CALLS FOR SERVICE ON BONFIRE NIGHT 2013 November 6th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments FALL IN CALLS FOR SERVICE ON BONFIRE NIGHT Merseyside Police recorded a fall in the number of reported incidents last night despite 5 November traditionally being one of the busiest times of year for the Force. Following months of careful planning by police, other emergency services and local councils there was a 23.4% reduction in reports of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage compared to the same period last year*. There was even a reduction of 16% in all calls to service when compared to the same period last year Chief Superintendent Rowland Moore, said: “Merseyside Police and our partners have put in a lot of effort planning this operation and it is very encouraging to see a fall in the number of incidents. “It would appear that the vast majority of young people took advantage of the numerous activities that were on offer to them across Merseyside and enjoyed the evening safely and responsibly. “I would like to thank parents who have clearly listened to our advice to make sure they know what their children are doing for Bonfire Night and the young people themselves have taken advantage of all the things put on for them.” Submit News Contact us with your community, business or sport news.
