“Officers have been conducting plain clothed patrols across the city centre today (15 June) in a bid to crack down on aggressive street beggars. A total of three people were arrested during the operation – two for repeat offences and the other for a first time offence. We hope that shoppers, business owners and employees will feel reassured by our actions.”
Excellent to know, and more importantly to hear!, that the police are being pro-active as well as re-active, I think. Very reassuring to us citizens!
Personally I think it is so very important that we support and help them when we can.
