‘Keep it festive and fun’ on Mad Friday

As revellers prepare for one of the busiest evenings of the year in Montgomeryshire, Dyfed-Powys Police are getting set for their own ‘Mad Friday’.

Frontline officers, staff, Special Constables and Roads Policing Teams will be out and about across the force, as they expect to see higher than usual numbers of people celebrating the last Friday before Christmas.

Offices are preparing to keep towns and villages free of disorder, visiting pubs and clubs to carry out licensing checks, and conducting drink/drug drive operations on the roads.

And they will be working closely with partners in local authorities who will join officers to undertake checks on taxis and pubs, while volunteer organisations will be handing out flip flops and water to people in some towns who might have enjoyed one too many, and bar and door staff will play their part in keeping the festive night out running smoothly.

The force says arrests will be a last resort, and are encouraging anyone going out to avoid trouble and to keep it festive and fun.

Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Claire Parmenter said: “As you plan and prepare for your events and parties this Christmas, we ask that you have a plan for the important things – the things that’ll keep you and others safe. 

“Know your limits. Know how you’re going to get home. Know that you’ll be able to reflect on your big night out for all the right reasons and not because you were carried away in the moment. 

“We all hope you have a fantastic Christmas and if you’re out in our towns across the force area, we look forward to seeing you.”
