PEOPLE visiting the coastal area of Caister this Easter holiday will be that much safer thanks to the local neighbourhood policing teams.
Many visitors flock to the seaside resorts during the bank holiday weekend, but tend to be complacent about leaving valuables out on display.
Police in the area are running Operation Spotlight to keep visitors safe this Easter period during one of the busiest weekends of the year.
The operation emphasises on keeping property secure and out of sight from opportunist thieves.
The local safer neighbourhood teams (SNTs) in the area will be carrying out extra high visibility patrols across the holiday camps and will be providing guests with crime prevention advice.
Rural Flegg Villages SNT Sgt Caroline Adams said: “We would also like to remind visitors that leaving valuables on display in holiday accommodation while out makes it an easy target for opportunist thieves.
