Operation Juke got the thumbs up from Police & Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens and the new Chief Constable, Nick Gargan during a pit stop at the Avon & Somerset Police Headquarters this week.
Operation Juke is part of the Crimestoppers West Country roadshow running for four months and made possible thanks to the Wessex Garage Pennywell Road dealership who generously provided a brand new Nissan Juke.
Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “This is a great initiative which will really raise awareness for Crimstoppers and importantly tell people how they can pass on anonymous information.
“Crimestoppers makes a real difference to reducing crime and improving our communities. I’m glad we will be able to support Operation Juke while we are out and about over the summer too.”
Chair of West Country Crimestoppers, Dev Chakraborty, said; “We are delighted with our little Nismo. It has a tough, sporty exterior design, which we think will help to reinforce our crime-fighting image as well as make it stand out.
"A number of success stories have been written onto the vehicle, which should make a great talking point for anyone who sees us. The car will be valuable in raising the profile of the charity and promoting our 0800 555 111 number.”
Sue Mountstevens and her team will be supporting @OperationJuke at events over the summer, look out for the pictures. To keep track follow @OperationJuke on Twitter.
