Glossop locals invited to take part in breathalyser operation

Posted on 31st October 2014

Safer Neighbourhood officers will be heading out into Glossop Town Centre to invite locals to take part in a breathalyser test as part of Operation Cassidy.

The Glossop Safer Neighbourhood Team will be visiting the centre later this evening (Friday, October 31) to raise awareness of alcohol consumption and the dangers of drink-driving.

The policing team will be working alongside the force’s licensing department and partner agencies to invite locals to come and take part in the breathalyser test to see how intoxicated they actually are.

The events aims to offer advice and raise awareness around the use and misuse of alcohol consumption, along with highlighting what a unit equates to and how many can be found in different drinks.

Partner agencies will also be on hand to offer information cards and support around the health concerns related to excessive drinking, and free bottles of water, which have been supplied by Buxton Water, will also be handed out.

High-visibility patrols will be carried out throughout the evening and any anti-social behaviour will be dealt with promptly by the team.

The event comes as part of Operation Cassidy which is set to run over the next three months to combat anti-social behaviour caused through alcohol consumption, particularly within the night time economy.

To find out more about the event or to speak to the Glossop Town Safer Neighbourhood Team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
