Police launch ‘Operation Relentless’ in Northern Ireland

The Police Service of Northern Ireland this week launched Operation Relentless in a bid to reduce offending and build safer communities.

Operation Relentless will see targeted efforts by Police to locate outstanding individuals who are wanted on bench warrants or wanted for arrest or interview.

The Police Service will harness the power of their social media following and issue images of individuals wanted on bench warrants on their Facebook pages, in a bid to locate individuals who have failed to turn up at court and are wanted for criminal offences.

Chief Superintendent Muir Clark explained:

“The service we provide is victim focused and Operation Relentless is another tool to help us achieve effective and timely resolutions for victim of crime.

“Our aim is to make our communities safer.

“You will see images of offenders appear on your local Police Service Facebook page over the coming weeks. If you have information that can help us locate individuals, please do not post on our social media but contact us directly by phoning 101.

“In relation to the images we will release, we have pursued every reasonable option to locate the individuals and would encourage anyone with an outstanding warrant to contact us directly on 101 or through your solicitor.

“We hope that the wider community in Northern Ireland will support us during Operation Relentless so that we can assist speedy justice for victims.”

If a member of the public has any issues in relation to whether or not bench warrant is live, they should contact Northern Ireland Court Service.
