A police team has been established specifically to combat knife crime in London. The force is comprised of 75 officers, who will “build on the co-ordinated activity already being carried out under borough-wide Blunt 2 operations and will work in the areas of London worst affected by knife crime“. The GLA press release links to a piece that boasts of 1,214 arrests after 26,777 searches.
In the article, however, Boris speaks of “Ray Lewis…leading a huge drive to get kids off the streets and into activities which raise their aspirations and help turn their lives around“. As he stresses the importance of “addressing the symptoms and the root causes of crime and violence“, Boris should be clear on the changes that will be made following Lewis’s departure, and shouldn’t merely wield the might of the Met.
