A "major blitz on crime" has been promised by Kent Police with the focus on festive crime hotspots.
Kent's police chief said one crime was 'one crime too many'
Officers will be targeting burglary, vehicle crime, criminal damage and anti-social behaviour, including drink-related nuisance and violence.
Seasonal drink-fuelled crime includes increased night-time nuisance, drug and drink driving, and increased violence.
The force said violence can range from pub punch-ups to attacks behind closed doors, including domestic violence.
A Kent Police spokeswoman said: "Sadly, the festive season can be a time of suffering for domestic violence victims, as alcohol also fuels rage.
"Specialist teams will be working with other agencies to identify and support victims - and to deal with the person causing the violence."
Chief Constable Mike fuller said crime in Kent was low, but added: "Every crime is one too many."
He said the force's message to criminals was "don't even think of making Christmas a misery for others".
The blitz will focus on known criminals and troublemakers using local information and intelligence, police said.
