As we reach the end of May, it has been an eventful week for the men and women who keep us safe, fighting crime and disorder. This week we applaud police and probation from as far afield as Southwark and Hull.
Traffic Stop of the Week
Another week, another set of prolific thieves stopped, searched and arrested by police officers, this time in Manchester. Shop thefts are often considered victimless crimes, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Shop workers are often subject to violence and intimidation, and the theft of items only benefits criminals.
Foot Patrol of the Week
The Public Safety Foundation is an enormous supporter of foot patrol, and so it’s no surprise that we are shining a light on police officers out on foot in Southwark this week. It was great to see them looking the part and getting out and about across their patch of London.
More great work from probation using Community Payback to clear up and clean up our public spaces – in this case probation in London using Community Payback to clear up the paths and walkways around the A13 in Barking.
Arrest of the Week
Merseyside police officers had a cracking result this week when they arrested a 20-year old for possession of a knife, theft and various road traffic offences. Anti-social riders and drivers can cause a real nuisance to local people and so it’s great to see police in Litherland get their man!
Stop and Search
Another week and another excellent example of stop and search being used to make the streets safer.
Warrants and Raids
Finally, a brilliant result for police in Hull who raided an address and recovered drugs, cash and weapons, and made a number of arrests. This work undoubtedly helping make a dent in crime and disorder in the Hull area.
