A day of visible policing will be carried out across Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham in a bid to tackle criminals who harm London’s communities.

“THERE will be no escape for criminals today” is the message from the Met Police as Operation Big Wing gets underway this morning.

A day of visible policing will be carried out across Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham in a bid to tackle criminals who harm London’s communities.

Activities being carried out include the execution of warrants and the arresting of those on outstanding warrants.

People involved in burglary, robbery, handling stolen goods and theft will also be a focus as part of the crackdown, whilst uninsured drivers will be clocked by officers using ANPR checks.

Bromley Police Chief Inspector Andy Furphy said: "Operation Big Wing is both reinforcing what we do on daily basis in targeting criminals head-on and providing further public reassurance through visible high impact policing.

“We will be using a huge range of tactics to stop thieves, showing residents that we have listened to their concerns and we are committed to taking robust preventative and disruptive action to stop this criminal activity and make our communities safer.

“Today is also about warning those breaking the law and engaging in criminal activity that we will be doing everything we can to stop them and put them before the courts.”

Well done to the Met Police and NS for once again tipping off any criminals across Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich and Lewisham. It’s not going to take all day for them to remove any drugs/weapons or stolen goods from their homes and make sure they are not in the area while your operation unfolds.
It’s not rocket science to know that criminals and gangs work on a large scale and have many contacts of whom probably use your broadcasts as tip offs.... I congratulate you on your stupidity!!!

Part of the campaign is advertising to scummy crims that the Police are coming...... be afraid. If they are knocking on the NS door then every news paper in London will be getting a knock including the independent and the BBC as they are or have all reported on it.

Maybe Google Operation Big Wing and see the results it has had this year. You never know you might learn something today.

What's the big news? Aren't the police doing this every day. Sounds like a publicity campaign rather than a real operation.
