Police Activity during December
Local Drug Raids and Motorists Check
The Chiswick and Brentford Deployment team have been concentrating their efforts in hot spot areas within Chiswick and Brentford, where theft from motor vehicle offences have occurred. Crime prevention leaflets have been left on vehicles, warning drivers not to leave valuables on display. They have been working together with Safer Neighbourhood Teams to flood problem areas especially as Christmas approached. The team are working with the sector, acting on information and targeting known offenders.
PCSOs have been working alongside CCTV staff in their control room, assisting in identifying known offenders in the Chiswick/Brentford sector. If any are seen to be acting suspiciously, officers are directed to the location to stop/search them. This has been a good deterrent and often the offender will leave the area. During foot patrols, the PCSOs have spoken with any residents who have left valuables on display, such as laptops and presents and reminded them on crime prevention, encouraging them to keep valuables out of site.
The team have taken part in Operation HAWK acting on information supplied by local residents, to disrupt criminals. The team supported other Safer Neighbourhood Teams during drugs warrants in Chiswick and Brentford. During one search in Brentford a large amount of Class A drugs were found with a street value of nearly ten thousand pounds.
The team continue to represent the sector during Operation CUBO, stopping vehicles motorists and checking motorists had the correct licence and insurance to drive. The latest operation was run on Tuesday 13th December across the sector at London Road, Kew Bridge Road, Acton Lane and Bath Road. Numerous vehicles have been seized since Operation CUBO was launched and generally the public have been very supportive. Operation CUBO will continue throughout 2012.
