A quick look back at Christmas and New Year

Along with our colleagues in the other emergency services it was a busy Christmas and New Year period for us!

To give you an idea of what we have been up to, we responded to 3869 calls between 24th December and 1st January. The majority of these related to ‘public safety and welfare’ this includes calls about missing people, domestic incidents and suspicious behaviour.

Our custody units were also busy with 206 people arrested, spending time in our cells in connection with a variety of offences.

Thanks to all of you who helped us with our enquiries and for your support with ongoing investigations at this particularly demanding time.

We are here 24/7, if you don’t need urgent assistance or have a general enquiry dial 101 but in an emergency always dial 999.

If you are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech impediment you can use a text phone to call the Typetalk emergency line on 18000.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and safe 2018 from all at Gwent Police.
