During the seven years that Relentless has been running in Avon and Somerset there have more than 3000 arrests.
Gold commander Assistant Chief Constable Anthony Bangham said: "Relentless has been running for seven years and has two main aims – reinforcing what we do on daily basis in targeting criminals head-on and providing further public reassurance through visible high impact policing
"The fact that 72 people have already been arrested this morning sends out a strong message that we continue to be relentless in our pursuit of those who commit crime," said ACC Bangham.
