NINE people were charged in a crackdown on violent crime and disorder in an Aberdeen community.
Police Scotland’s divisional violence reduction unit and the Tillydrone Community Policing Team conducted the operation, which started on Friday and finished today.
Officers undertook additional high visibility patrols and targeted those committing crime in the Tillydrone area. They also executed a number of warrants, particularly those related to domestic and violent offences.
A number of people were charged with offences, including a 22-year-old man who was due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court accused making a threat against his partner.
Additionally, a 41-year-old woman was charged accused of assault and a 47-year old woman was charged with alleged traffic offences.
Small quantities of alcohol and drugs were seized as part of the operation.
Pc Paul Slatter, of Aberdeen’s divisional violence reduction unit, said: “This was an intelligence-led operation that will be replicated regularly across various areas of Aberdeen Division to target such offenders.
“The divisional violence reduction unit will continue to work in partnership with every community policing team in the Aberdeen area to ensure offenders know that any crime, especially violence, will not be tolerated.”
Inspector Darren Bruce, from the Tillydrone CPT, said: “We will continue to send out strong messages to deter any and all offenders. If they do not listen, we will use every resource available to deal with them.
“Tillydrone is a very strong community and Police would like to thank the local public for their continual assistance and support.”
