Lincolnshire Police is to launch an innovative advertising campaign with UK banks to tackle unruly behaviour during the festive season.

The campaign, which goes live on December 15, will be made possible through i-design's atmAd offering will deliver dynamic digital advertisements to the public.

The advertisements will run on high street ATMs in town centres during evening hours, perfectly timed to reach people as they withdraw cash across 45,000 one-to-one transactions. The cash machine advertisements are part of a wider integrated campaign running across several mediums including billboards and beer mats across South Lincolnshire

"It's easy to get unruly when in a festive mood, so this campaign aims to highlight how your actions, especially when drinking, could make the cost of your night out add up to more than you bargained for at Christmas," said Jo Toomey, Local Authority Liaison Officer, Lincolnshire Police.

"We needed a cost-effective medium that could reach our target audience when they are out celebrating on the high street. Through i-design we can deliver our message to the right people at the right time," she added.

The advertisements will assist Lincolnshire Police in its target of reducing the level of violent crime that results from the night-time economy and alcohol. The force is working with partners and the South Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership to tackle this issue head on.

The campaign will also deliver additional reminders on over 11,000 take-away cash machine receipts.

"Increasingly, banks are contributing to police initiatives as part of their social action agenda," commented Ana Stewart, CEO, i-design.

"The cash machine is the ideal medium for banks to demonstrate commitment to social responsibility and help Lincolnshire Police provide its community with important advice and messaging during the festive season," she concluded.
