Guernsey Police and the Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to take a tough stance on crime this Christmas.

The Christmas Cracker initiative aims to let islanders know they are likely to be in a cell over the festive period if they are caught committing a crime.

Det Ch Insp Ruari Hardy said: "It's about addressing shoplifting, it's about addressing anti-social behaviour and it's about preventing crime."

The campaign includes posters and more high-visibility police patrols.

It will run alongside the annual anti-drink-driving campaign.
