Operation Orange Bellatrix

Dear Parent, 
I am writing to you to request your support for ‘Operation Orange Bellatrix’ which will be running during the summer holidays in the Cynon Valley area.
Traditionally, during the summer period we see an increase in anti-social behaviour such as disorderly conduct driven by youths’ misuse of alcohol and drugs and this is of great concern for our local communities.

To address this, we will be working with partners in the British Transport Police, Rhondda Cynon Taff council and the Cwm Taf Youth Offending Service to target such behaviour in the Aberdare town centre and outlying areas.  

It is the priority of officers to ensure that everybody that comes to the town centre has a safe and enjoyable time.  Officers will take positive action when dealing with those that cause anti- social behaviour, those involved in drug and alcohol abuse or those deemed vulnerable. 

British Transport police will support us by having a presence on the local rail network to reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour and provide hi visibility reassurance patrols. 

The purpose of Operation Orange Bellatrix is to prevent young person’s coming to harm through alcohol & drug misuse and involvement in Anti-Social Behaviour.  

I would be grateful if I could rely upon your support during the summer period, working with us to ensure young persons’ safety.  If you have any concerns regarding alcohol abuse, drug misuse or information which may assist my officers feel free to give me a call on 01685 724212. 

Sgt 3418 Mike Rudall.
