Police in Fife are deploying officers until May 26 to address a range of issues affecting local communities.

Operation Tusker will combat the predicted seasonal increase in crime and disorder that occurs in May, year on year.

It will utilise a range of measures and incorporate partnership working, prevention and enforcement.

Superintendent Dougie Milton, lead officer, said: “Analysis of crime trends clearly indicates an increase of incidents during May, so we are providing a proactive and effective response to address these issues. The emphasis will be on reducing violent crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour, including alcohol- related violence. Robust enquiry into domestic abuse and hate crime will continue as a priority as part of this process.

“Each day there will be specific directed action across Fife – we’re seeking daily information from the public and you can follow the campaign on twitter @FIFEPOLICE using #TUSKER.”
