Halloween And Bonfire BANG Campaign In Flintshire And Wrexham

This article is old - Published: Thursday, Oct 20th, 2016

The Neighbourhood Policing teams in North East Wales have been busy helping to try and ensure that young people have a safe and spooktacular Halloween and Bonfire Night as part of our Operation BANG (Be A Nice Guy). ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The team have been working with community groups, using joint funding from North Wales Police in partnership with the Police and Community Trust (PACT), Arson Reduction Team, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service. This has helped fund the activities that are set to be held over the Halloween period. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

As part of Operation BANG, School Community Police Officers throughout North Wales have been talking with young people in schools and youth clubs about how their behaviour can affect others. They have also been reminding them to keep themselves safe if they go out trick or treating. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Bookmarks and postcards which contain advice have also been produced for pupils. Special posters – including a poster asking Trick or Treaters to move on – are being distributed across the force area. There are also available to download and print here. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Events that have been arranged include: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
