Operation Banger will once again be implemented throughout the busy Halloween and Bonfire Night period to help keep residents safe and address any anti-social behaviour that might take place.
A successful partnership between Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue and the Safer Wirral Hub, Operation Banger has proved effective these past few years in reducing incidents of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in Wirral.
Community Patrol will once again be supporting the local policing teams with high visibility patrolling in hot spot areas. They will also be reminding residents to bring their wheelie bins back onto their property after collection to prevent them being targets of arson.
The anti-social behaviour team will be out chatting to young people - and their parents, whose support is vital at this time of year to ensure they know where their children are and what they are up to.
Over the period around bonfire night, additional pop up sports sessions will take place by council’s sports development team at Ilchester Square, while the Neo cafe and Gautby Road Play and Community Centre will be running sessions and trips out.
