Police to share details of 'Mad Friday' call-outs
9:00am Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
Police in Yorkshire will be sharing details of incidents they are called to this Friday to help people understand the variety and number of call-outs they receive on ‘Mad Friday’.
The Friday before Christmas is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for emergency services, with a spike in alcohol-related anti-social behaviour and violent crime. Chief Inspector Jaene Booth, of West Yorkshire Police, said: “Our hope is by getting an insight into the situations that other people get themselves in to, this will help others think about their own behaviour.”
