Safe Summer 2019 – Operation Phoenix

Cleveland Police has launched a major campaign to prevent crime, protect communities and tackle serious violence over the summer. Operation Phoenix will see an improved public service from Cleveland Police, more help for vulnerable people – such as those suffering domestic abuse – and more officers tackling serious violence. The summer is traditionally a time of increased demand for the police service and Operation Phoenix is being put in place to manage that demand directly through increased protection for vulnerable people and a focussed approached to tackling serious and organised crime. Part of the campaign is to encourage all parents to talk to their children and empower them to make the right choices about alcohol and to communicate the many risks and potential consequences of drinking, taking drugs and getting involved in anti-social behaviour.
