Be Safe This Christmas

This Christmas the Force has launched a campaign to target the alcohol related issues that traditionally increase during the festive period.

The campaign aims to give advice on:

  • Stay Safe – encouraging young women to stay safe on nights out in towns and cities across the county.
  • Domestic Violence – reminding victims that domestic violence increases at Christmas and encouraging them to report incidents.
  • Phone and purse theft  – warning the public of the risk of theft from a person when out in pubs or cafes.
  • Drink Driving - Reminding people to get home safely this Christmas by NOT drinking and driving. Remember, the day after you could be over the limit.
  • One Punch Manslaughter – reminding young men that drunken fights can have very serious consequences. View the One Punch Video here:


Police patrols will be increased, particularly over the weekends before Christmas, to make sure that everyone has a good time but stays safe.

Officers and volunteers will be giving out advice, leaflets and spikeys to people out drinking in town centres and particularly helping young people to get a safe taxi home.

Alcohol Related Violence Radio Ad

My mates tell me when I drink too much I start acting all hard and getting into fights, but I don't care - life's about living - right?

(laughter, drinks knocked over)

What you looking at!?

(scuffle, fighting, door slammed)

Now I'm in here - they say it'll go on my record, and Katie said she wouldn't stay with me if i did it again.

Have fun, but know your limits, be safe this Christmas, start thinking - reduce your drinking - drink alcohol responsibly.

This was a message from Police in South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and Humberside.


Domestic Violent Radio Ad

When my dad hits my mum, she feels scared, she feels powerless, she feels vulnerable, she feels alone.

I think my dad knows this - but does he know that it makes me and my sister feel exactly the same way - I think mum does - wonder what would happen if he did.

Domestic Violence - it's time to speak out. You can call 0808 2000 247 for help and advice - this is a message from Police in South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and Humberside.
