Three men have been charged in connection with alleged domestic abuse offences following a crackdown on violence in the North-east.
Police targeted domestic abuse offenders across the region on Friday, progressing inquiries and ensuring that any bail conditions previously imposed were being complied with.
A total of 30 officers took part in the operation to ensure the safety of victims, trace and deal with outstanding offenders.
Evidence was gathered for domestic abuse cases across the division, resulting in three men aged 20, 26 and 41 from the Elgin area being arrested.
Six victim reassurance visits were carried out and 22 bail checks were carried out with perpetrators.
Sergeant Tricia MacLean of the Partnership Coordination Unit said: “The focus of this operation was both on victims and perpetrators, providing victims with support and targeting offenders who carry out domestic abuse.
“With the assistance of our partners it is hoped that early intervention with immediate help and support will encourage victims of domestic abuse to speak out and report offending behaviour.”
