Each week we select a sample of the excellent crime-fighting work that is taking place across the country. This week is no different, with examples from as far afield as Lyme in Dorset and Gateshead in Northumbria.
Foot Patrol of the Week
This week we shine a light on foot patrol in Lyme, where Special Constable 3066 has been on patrol with colleagues, looking smart, professional and responding to a range of calls for service – including road traffic collisions and a suicidal male. Foot patrol is an important foundation for neighbourhood policing and public safety.
London Probation doing more great work cleaning up litter and rubbish in Tower Hamlets (again!). We know that cleaner streets are safer streets, so it is great to see this sustained effort to clean up Tower Hamlets. Excellent work in this 50th Anniversary Year of Community Payback.
Arrest of the Week
In Dartford, Kent, Police Dog Jagger had a whole lot of fun assisting firearms officers with a search of a vehicle. The vehicle contained cannabis, a knife, and hammer. Another fine example of police officers and their police dog colleagues helping make us all safer and dealing a blow to criminals in Kent.
Stop and Search
A member of the public called in reports of a young person with a knife in Solihull this week, with the result that police swiftly pounced and arrested a suspect for possession of a pointed or bladed article after efforts were made to conceal it during a stop and search. Another excellent example of stop and search being used to make our streets safer.
Warrants and Raids
Northumbia Police have been putting in the graft recently with Chief Constable Jardine’s Operation Impact resulting in a surge of police activity, putting in the doors of drug dealers right across the force. This week we applaud those police officers who took a door in Saltwell, and arrested two suspects for possession with intent to supply drugs. Excellent work!
