**** HRP Media Release
HRP launches annual Operation Fall-Back
Students are heading back to university next week, which means Halifax Regional Police launches its Operation Fall-Back campaign. The campaign was created in 2004 in response to concerns raised by citizens. The campaign aims to reduce noise complaints, property damage and public intoxication in the south end of Halifax.
Operation Fall-Back runs throughout the month of September. Halifax Regional Police implements increased high-visibility patrols and directed enforcement in known complaint areas. Officers continue to work closely with community groups, university officials and student representatives to help prevent any issues through education and enforcement.
Halifax Regional Police would like to emphasize that community safety is everyone’s responsibility. Everyone can help play a role. Citizens are encouraged to report any concerns about quality-of-life issues, such as noise, public impairment and/or safety.
