More than 100 arrests were made for violet crimes over a single weekend in Kent, including two in Dartford after bouncers were attacked at a nightclub.
The security staff were left with facial injuries following attempts to remove two men from the club.
Police were called at around 2am on October 13, and arrested two men, aged 28 and 31, from Greenhithe on suspicion of assault. They have both been bailed pending further enquiries until November 21.
Kent Police are now looking to crack down on drink related incidents and reports of domestic abuse by placing officers in town centres in key locations, using predictive policing data.
Assistant Ch Con Rob Price said: “Reducing all violent crime in Kent remains one of our key priorities and our officers will not hesitate to arrest anyone behaving aggressively, whether they are in a public place or in private.
“Anyone committing a violent offence can expect to spend a night in the cells and a criminal record.”
