Police to flood 28 North Wales communities with extra patrols in 'Hotspot Response'
North Wales Police will implement enhanced measures to combat serious violence and anti-social behaviour

Police will pour extra officer patrols into 28 parts of North Wales in a "Hotspot Response". North Wales Police will implement enhanced measures to combat serious violence and anti-social behaviour in towns across the region.

Over the next 12 months, significant additional patrol resources will be assigned to areas with higher incidences of these offence types. Named ?Op Restore?, this enhanced operational capability has been facilitated by Home Office funding as part of its ?Hotspot Response? initiative.

A North Wales Police officer has spoken of one of the worst dog attacks he has seen in his career, when 22 sheep carrying lambs were killed, and another 48 injured.

The devastating impact of the attack at Paul Jones' farm in Rhos, near Wrexham, was reported in 2023.

Two American XL Bulldogs escaped their home and came onto the farm, mauling and killing dozens of animals.

Mr Jones lost around ?14,000 worth of animals in the attack.

The incident was caught on the officers' body cameras while they were filming the latest series of Y Llinell Las for S4C.

Re: North Wales Police using plane in crackdown

North Wales Police are using a plane to help catch bikers who are speeding and riding in an "anti-social" way in a bid to cut road deaths. As part of ongoing efforts to reduce motorcycle-related deaths and serious injuries on the roads of North Wales officers from the Roads Crime Unit held a special operation over the weekend.

Officers in marked and unmarked cars targeted the A494, A5 and A487 in the Gwynedd South area on Sunday due to the number of injuries and fatalities in that area. They used the NPAS (National Police Air Service) fixed wing aircraft to help identify those riding in an "anti-social" manner.
