Avon and Somerset Police plan to tackle youth crime

Police will be visiting schools and youth clubs across Bristol and Somerset as they target youth-related crime and anti-social behaviour.

Activities include an anti-bullying workshop in Bristol, DJ lessons in Wincanton and regular truancy sweeps.

It is part of Avon and Somerset Police's Relentless operation aimed at keeping children and young people safe.

The three-month initiative ends on 30 November.

Assistant Chief Constable Anthony Bingham said: "Young people can be vulnerable to becoming a victim of crime, or some may even be influenced into committing a crime themselves, so it's essential that we connect with them early on so they can understand that we are approachable and always there to help if they ever need us."
