Latest operation 'Big Wing' under way today to fight crime in south London boroughs

News Shopper: Criminals from across south London are being targeted Criminals from across south London are being targeted

A huge police swoop is under way today (April 24) to combat burglary, theft, and other offences in Bromley and south London.

The latest operation ‘Big Wing’ involves more than 5,500 officers from across the capital and will hit boroughs such as Bromley, Bexley, Greenwich and Lewisham.

It comes as an ongoing drive to cut crime in London and police will be targeting thief hot spots such as pawn shops and other stores.

Commander Mak Chishty, leading today’s push, said: “The MPS is committed to driving down crime and its generators in London.

“Crimes like burglary, robbery and theft have a huge impact on the people who are victims. 

“Work continues day in and day out to target those responsible and the networks they use to sell on stolen property, but big highly visible operations like today play a major part in the fight against crime and demonstrates there is no hiding place for criminals.”

The police are arresting those in government? About time bloody thieves.

Is it me but the biggest thieves are the banks, they commit fraud every minute of every day and if society is having problems it's no point pointing at society but why society is behaving like it is. And there is answers once you research what is behind the mess. Locking people up is just making millions of pounds for the government.

Individuals must take responsibility for their own actions. A member of society has no right to steal or rob another person. It is not even the smallest bit viable for them to blame their behaviour on government or problems that they are having. It's good that these people are being targeted and removed from the streets.

And I don't think that locking people up makes money for the gov't.... it just costs them millions. Usual nonsense from whiterabbit... And the gov't is us by the way, their money is our money from taxes, no matter how it's spent.
