Organisations from across the North-east have joined forces to urge the public to stay safe this festive season.
The partnership, which includes more than 30 groups, launched the initiative for the city centre.
Issues in the centre of Aberdeen include violence, antisocial behaviour and vandalism – all of which will be targeted.
Police Scotland, one of the organisations involved, said the hope is that, like last year, there will be fewer such incidents.
City centre sergeant Gavin Jardine said: “We are not discouraging people from having fun in the city centre.
“What we are reminding people about is to be safe over the festive period and to watch out for their friends.
“If they are coming into the city centre, to make sure they have a plan of where they are going and how they are getting home later.
“Festive initiatives similar to this have been highly successful over the years in reducing antisocial behaviour thanks to the dedicated approaches and expertise from all partner agencies involved.
“These include the roles of the Scottish Ambulance Service, the fire service, street pastors, Aberdeen Inspired and the wider business community.
“There are also the invaluable roles of home safety marshals, taxi drivers, bus drivers and all those who play a key role in ensuring people get home safely.”
Cllr Marie Boulton, convener of Aberdeen City Council’s licensing board, was pleased to see the partnership was launching the initiative again.
She said: “A vibrant, busy and engaging city centre is vital.
“The Christmas period is one of the busiest times of the year in terms of footfall, day and night. And for everyone’s enjoyment it is essential that there is a safe and welcoming environment across all of the festivities.
“We join our partners in urging everyone to make the most of the busy weeks ahead, but to keep safety and security in mind.”
