'Bad apples'

Officers said Operation Harvest would include a number of crackdowns which would see criminals targeted "in their homes, communities and on the roads".

Assistant Chief Constable Terry Sweeney said: "Through Operation Harvest we are concentrating on bringing to justice the criminals that cause the most harm and misery to people in our county.

"We want to remove the bad apples that are spreading their rot around our communities."

The operation is also targeting dangerous drivers, metal thieves and people wanted for drugs offences.
