Operation Nightguard

Every weekend in Edinburgh city centre Operation Nightguard is in place to prevent disorder and provide reassurance to the public.

Dedicated teams of officers from Police Scotland are deployed on foot during the evening and night time to prevent incidents, assist vulnerable people and ensure that everyone gets home safely.

Police Scotland are always out and about supported by The City of Edinburgh Council who have additional staff out including taxi marshals, environmental wardens, night time teams and CCTV operators.

Police Scotland also work with volunteers from Edinburgh Street Pastors, Street Assist Edinburgh and other outreach services who are on hand to help and support vulnerable people.
