Ayrshire Safer shores as temperatures rise


With forecasters promising improvements in the weather tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd July 2019, police in Ayrshire are working alongside partners to promote safety as part of the annual safety initiative - ‘Safer Shores’.

‘No alcohol, no antisocial behaviour, just fun in the sun’ is the motto of the multi-agency initiative which aims to improve community safety and reduce antisocial behaviour in and around Ayrshire’s beaches over the summer months as well as the associated transport networks.

Additional officers from Police Scotland and British Transport Police will be in and around coastal areas, on trains and at railway and bus stations working with other partners to keep people safe.

Superintendent Colin Martin, of Ayrshire Police Division, commented “the annual Safer Shores initiative has been developed to ensure a swift response in tackling incidents of antisocial behaviour at our coastal locations. Our message is clear - Ayrshire has some fantasic beaches and people are welcome to enjoy everything they offer, this must be done responsibly though.

“We will have officers on patrol across Ayrshire to ensure visitors enjoy their visit to the beach - remember it is an offence to consume alcohol in public places and all incidents of antisocial behaviour will be dealt with robustly.

“Police and partners will be promoting safety messages online using #AyrshireSaferShores and I would encourage anyone with any concerns to speak with officers on patrol or to call us on 101.”
