“The local community understand the challenges; they have been totally behind us and we will continue to work closely with our partners, other agencies and community members to make the area safer and help those who want to get out of a life of crime.”
Detective Superintendent Tim Champion, from the Met’s trident and gang crime command, added: “Reducing gang violence is a Met priority. Gang-related drug dealing ruins lives for those that are directly involved, like dealers and users. It also leaves local communities scarred by crimes and the anti-social behaviour that is an inevitable consequence of the dealing.”
