Constables Shane Berry, Joshua Cunningham, John Ticker and Damien Mullen at a briefing before the start of Operation Doushen in Alice Springs. Picture: MARION ERLICH Cameron Boon Police will betalking to the young at night to find out who they are, what theyre doing and where theyre going and specifically asking the question: Why arent you at home? DOZENS of police will be looking for young trouble-makers this weekend to make sure Alice Springs stays safe during the school holidays. Uniformed and plain-clothes officers will be taking part in Operation Doushen, which started last night and will continue through to Sunday morning. Detective Senior Sergeant Lauren Hill said crime rates spiked at the beginning of the school holidays and police were dedicated to combating those statistics. She said: Police will be working with several youth organisations to combat anti-social behaviour in the CDB. The property crime reduction unit will be cooperating with the general duty officers as well as drug and general purpose dog units. Officers will be engaging young people during the night and trying to find out who they are, what theyre doing and where theyre going specifically asking the question why arent you at home?. If police see an eight-year-old roaming the streets in the middle of the night, theyre going to investigate the matter and take the child home or to a safe place. Parents need to ensure their children are safe at night. They need to know where their children are. They need to be both responsible and accountable. Det-Snr Sgt Hill said while Operation Doushen aimed at targeting public spaces, the highly successful City Safe program would also run as a followup to last weeks Operation Unite. She said: City Safe has, in the past, proved extremely successful at deterring drunken and other alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour in the CBD. City Safe will be used as a follow-up to last weeks Operation Unite, which targeted licensed premises and anti-social behaviour by patrons in and around those facilities. City Safe will see a highlyvisible police presence patrolling these premises to deter drunken brawls, which often occur in the early hours of the morning when bars close. We also intend using a general purpose dog for the entire operation, as they have proven to be very successful in tracking offenders and deterring behaviour. Police are confident the public will soon get the message that we are taking a zero-tolerance approach to this sort of behaviour, whether by drunks or youths at night, intimidating people and committing other crimes. Operation Doushen will continue throughout the Christmas period.
