Keeping Preston Safe

Alert message sent 16/02/2022 17:17:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary


Dear Citizen

Thank you for signing up to In The Know.

We just wanted to let you know that this week we have launched Operation Pavilion in response to reports of an increase in burglaries, attempted break ins, damage to businesses and anti-social behaviour.

We have been working hard behind the scenes with partners and you may have seen our mobile police van on the flag market along with our mounted colleagues patrolling the centre. Preston City Council’s Street Monitors also work in the afternoons and evening to engage with young people and respond to concerns for safety and anti-social behaviour. They will be linking in with other services, including the Police, the Council’s CCTV operation and youth service outreach teams working at locations in the city centre during the half-term week.

In addition, Preston Police has linked with Bid Preston to utilise its new high street audio messaging service, which will relay safety messages throughout the day.

We believe everyone should be able to visit Preston safely and enjoy their time here. Incidents of this nature need a multi-agency approach and we will continue to work with all our partners to take action where we can and will be introducing short and long-term initiatives to help combat the issues.

In the meantime if you do have any concerns please contact us on 101 and we would like to thank you for your co-operation.

Chief Inspector Sue Bushell
Preston Police
