POLICE in Inverness say they will have additional patrols this weekend as part of an initiative to reassure the public and address issues of drugs, alcohol, violence and antisocial behaviour.
Operation Respect will see police working with partners from the Inverness Community Safety Partnership.
Police said the initiative also aims to protect the most vulnerable.
Chief Inspector Mairi MacInnes, area commander for Inverness, said:"We are grateful for the support of all our partners. There will be an increased presence in and around the city centre to ensure that the area remains a safe place for all."
