Officers were present from 8pm until 3am carrying out checks on individuals, businesses and residential properties. Over the course of the night:
Councillor Lin Fairbrass – Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Community Safety said: This was an excellent example of how the Thanet Community Safety Partnership can draw resources from across our member organisations to help improve Thanet’s environment for residents, businesses and visitors. The operation was a great success and enabled us to address some of the serious issues in this particular area, which have been highlighted to the partnership by the community.
