Students are heading back to university, which means Halifax Regional Police (HRP) launches its Operation Fall-Back campaign this month. The campaign was created in 2004 in response to concerns raised by citizens. It 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. HRP 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 a repeat of problems from previous years 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 and public intoxication, and/or safety.
