Message from Humberside Police:-
It’s been four full weeks since the official launch of Operation Galaxy, and the team are continuing to relentlessly target the criminals who blight our communities, with well over 100 people arrested and almost 50 warrants carried out across the Humberside Force area.
Op Galaxy launched on Monday, 28 October, as a force wide priority team made up of detectives, officers and staff from Major Crime, Roads
Policing, Intelligence, Police dogs and handlers, Economic Crime and various other departments, who are all co-located.
Whilst the team are tackling the criminals involved in any type of crime, they are also working to identify and protect vulnerable people, through assisting in locating missing people to dismantling organised crime groups who exploit young people through county lines and drugs offences.
Over this past weekend alone nine people were arrested on drugs offences:
Friday 29 November
Saturday 30 November
Sunday 1 December
So here are the results so far from across the force area up to today (Monday, 2 December):
Assistant Chief Constable Chris Noble said: “The results we have seen in just four weeks are really encouraging and the Op Galaxy team continue to show their absolute commitment in making our streets and communities safer.
“Op Galaxy is very much a team effort and is all about us being on the front foot by dismantling organised crime groups, denying criminals the use of the roads and taking action against individuals who cause distress and misery in our communities.
“We will seek to lock those up who bring harm to individuals and take every action possible to make a real impact on crime, however your help is always needed and proves vital.
“We’ve asked what concerns you have and you’ve told us, and most critically, you’ve given us the information the Op Galaxy team have then been able to act on.
“Over 100 arrests have been made in your communities of those linked to or involved in criminal activity, and the Op Galaxy Team are committed in tackling the issues that matter the most to you.
“Our commitment is to be out every single day, locking people up, executing warrants and ensuring your streets are safer, by making the Humberside Force area a dangerous and hostile place for individuals who believe they can commit crime and are above the law.”
