Operation Myriad, which will run until March, is intelligence-led and will see officers partner up with other organisations including HM Revenue and Customs, ScottishPower, British Transport Police and the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency).
Officers will also work in communities to target drugs, street drinking, youth disorder and bogus callers, as well as visiting licensed premises and carrying out roadside safety checks, warrant executions and curfew and bail condition checks.
Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins said: "We are totally committed to fighting crime and disrupting the activities and lifestyles of those involved. It will be tougher for criminals to operate during Operation Myriad; we will be targeting the right people at the right time.
"Officers, including those from the force's specialist units including road policing, the mounted branch and the marine unit, will be out in force keeping people safe.
"My message to individuals and groups engaged in criminality is this: we will catch you, if not at the time, then through retrospective investigation and CCTV footage."
