Shepherd's Bush Police arrest 27 in two weeks

The Safer Neighbourhood Team looking after Shepherd's Bush has sent me their results from the last two weeks and it's impressive stuff. All the more so since I spent one Saturday night with them and appreciate that in between all of these resutls they would have been putting in a lot more time and effort into things that don't count as statistics but do shape the quality of life for people in W12. Read more about that here.

In the meantime though, here's their impressive looking scorecard from the last fortnight:

A total of 27 arrests have been made;
  • 8 drugs offences
  • 4 theft offences 
  • 6 for violence 
  • 6 for being wanted on warrant 
  • 3 for various other offences
High visibility patrols have also resulted in 112 stop and searches, 7 of these resulting in arrests. Approximately 50 wraps of crack cocaine, 22 bags of cannabis, £5000 worth of counterfeit goods, a cosh and a firearm have been seized by the team.

The team have robustly dealt with street drinkers and anti social behaviour in and around Shepherds Bush Green.
