A spate of arrests have been made in the latest neighbourhood crime crackdown.
 
Police made more than 4,800 arrests across the capital in their latest day of action in Operation Big Wing.
 
In Harrow, 17 arrests were made as the operation targeted crimes such as robbery, theft, burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, theft from a motor vehicle and criminal damage.
 
Commander Steve Watson, who led yesterday’s operation, said: “The impressive results from Operation Big Wing demonstrate our unwavering commitment to driving down crime and its generators in London.
 
“We are here to serve the public, and today’s activity will act as a warning to those intent on breaking the law and engaging in criminal activity that we will do everything we can to stop them, and wherever possible put them before the courts to make London safer for our communities.”

Superintendent Robert Revill of Roads and Transport Policing Command said: “We work tirelessly everyday to keep the travelling public safe by targeting those who commit crime on the transport network.
 
“By carrying out joint operations such as Operation Big Wing, we send out a clear message that crime will not be tolerated anywhere in London."

Congratulations to Commander Ovens and his officers. Harrow is on its way to achieving the title of Safest London Borough. We are slowly climbing the league table and every arrest brings Harrow closer to the target.
