The Force is working particularly closely with police in Suffolk, sharing information and providing additional police units to specifically target rave-goers or anyone suspected of involvement in the organisation of a rave across the two counties.
Chief Supt Tony Cherington said: “I want to make it quite clear that we will use all necessary resources to prevent, disrupt and close down illegal raves in this county. We have issued this warning as we approach the Halloween weekend.
“These events are unsafe and disruptive to our local communities. We will continue to take a hard line against them and seek to prosecute and seize and destroy the equipment of anyone found to be involved in their organisation. We will be putting on a significant police presence this weekend to achieve our aims.”
