Launch of Op Sceptre – national campaign to tackle knife crime18th November 2022
Update from Humberside Police:
Behind the scenes, officers across the force work relentlessly to identify and locate those wanted for crimes across our region, so that we can achieve justice for victims and to protect our communities.
In a bid to assist in apprehending those suspected of criminality, over the next ten days our proactive Operation Galaxy team will be ramping up their work carried out in our local communities, to ensure those who have committed crimes are held accountable for their actions.
Operation Galaxy launched in 2019 and comprises detectives, officers and staff from Major Crime, Roads Policing, Intelligence, Police dogs and handlers, Economic Crime and various other departments, who all work together to be able to target criminals from every angle who are causing our communities the most harm.
From Monday 14 November, the team will be targeting suspects involved in a whole host of crimes including organised crime, drug-related offences, violent crime, robbery, burglary, and antisocial behaviour.
The team will also be carrying out warrants across the Humberside force area, making arrests and seizing any illegal items such as drugs and weapons and any ill-gotten gains including cash.
In addition, they will be working in partnership with the local authorities, identifying and protecting vulnerable people in our communities, to disrupt and dismantle organised crime groups who target young people through county lines and drug offences.
Chief Superintendent Christine Wilson who is leading the operation said: “Operation Galaxy has been instrumental in disrupting those committing criminality across our region for just over three years.
“Over the course of the next ten days, no stone will be left unturned by the team and we will be making the lives of criminals very uncomfortable.
“Our message is very clear to those involved in criminality; your actions will not be tolerated and we will find you and ensure you are held accountable for your crimes.
“Throughout the ten day period, our local communities can expect to see an increased presence from our uniformed and plain clothed officers, particularly in areas where crime rates and antisocial behaviour incidents are more prevalent.
“Our Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPT) will also be highly visible in their local communities, engaging with residents and listening to concerns, as well as providing updates on the work we are doing to make your communities safer.
“We will always do everything we possibly can to identify and arrest those who have committed crimes across the Humberside force area, to ensure our residents feel safe and protected and justice is achieved for any victim of crime.”
We would always encourage you to report any offences to us so we can build the bigger picture and take action.
