Havering Police are out in force today as part of a major co-ordinated crackdown on criminals - the latest and largest manifestation of Operation Big Wing.
Officers will be joined by specialist colleagues to carry out arrests, search warrants, undertake licensing enforcement, ANPR operations, high visibility patrols and a range of other activity in what will be the widest-ranging operation of its kind to date.
Officers will also be conducting street briefings and police surgeries across the capital’s 32 boroughs to inform and engage the public on what is being done to tackle crime and disorder.
Havering Borough Commander, Chief Supt Jason Gwillim said: “Officers from every part of the Met have been mobilised and will be out and about on your streets in Havering today, tackling the crimes that affect your neighbourhood.
“You will see police carrying out licensing checks, uninsured vehicle checks, executing search warrants, and patrolling your local transport hubs throughout the day.
