Twenty people have died in Northern Ireland since 2004 and many more have been badly injured in so-called One Punch attacks.
The campaign, which has been running through December, highlights the risks of getting involved in an argument or fight which could ultimately lead to serious injury or death.
Detective Chief Inspector Karen Baxter said: "December is traditionally a busy month for local nightclubs and restaurants with revellers celebrating the festivities.
"However, One Punch attacks can and do happen. With just One Punch, lives have been destroyed and families' lives have been wrecked.
"Raising awareness now of the dangers of One Punch is important, as many people will be out socialising in the run-up to New Year Celebrations and most students and young people are off for their Christmas Break.
"Our message is to enjoy your night out, but more importantly - Stay Safe."
