Pembrokeshire police said that they had the ‘usual weekend amount of business’ on Black Friday, thanks to a pre-planned operation which meant they had the appropriate resources in place.
“The majority of revellers were well-behaved,” said Superintendent Ian John.
“In total we had 17 arrests in Pembrokeshire during the Friday and Saturday busy period – and they were for a variety of offences.
“Our officers were out on foot and mobile patrol throughout the weekend providing reassurance in the town centres and available to effectively and efficiently deal with any issues.”
Supt John reminded people to drink responsibly and keep themselves and others safe over the festive season.
“Officers will continue with foot patrols across the county to reassure the public – and deal with any offences over the rest of Christmas and New Year.
“We’ll be working closely with our colleagues in the licensed trade to ensure that passes as smoothly as possible.”
