Suffolk: Warning issued over potential for illegal raves over Easter weekend
MEMBERS of the public and landowners are urged to be on the look-out for suspicious activity this Easter weekend as police bid to crack down on illegal raves.
Officers are also warning would-be organisers that sound equipment will be seized and that they will face prosecution.
Suffolk’s Chief Superintendent, Jon Brighton, said: “Historically we have seen illegal raves being held over Bank Holiday weekends.
“Our zero-tolerance approach to such unlicensed music events, which are potentially dangerous and cause unnecessary damage and disruption, will continue.
“We will maintain a hard line against anyone organising such events and we will prosecute and seize the equipment and vehicles of those found to be involved in their organisation.
You may also want to watch:
“We will also seek to prosecute anyone attending a rave who commits other offences.”
Extra patrols have been planned, while people are asked to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity around open land or disused buildings to 101.
