Supt Bill McWilliam said: "We will be targeting offenders intent on causing misery over Christmas." A personal safety website has also been set up.
Mr McWilliam added: "We want to reassure the public that we're taking action and also remind them that they need to take responsibility for themselves, their property and cash when they're out and about."
Was given a don't drink and drive leaflet on the way out of the Bagdad tunnel last night. Lol.
