They are very dedicated to their work and achieving the best results for our victims. We have some of the best sanction detection rates right across the Met.
“The burglary figures show we have now 1,700 fewer offences in the past 12 months. With over 1,000 fewer robberies on our streets. It is important that we are bringing these offenders to justice. One burglary, one robbery is too many. We are always touched by our victims and that is what motivates us even more to make sure we bring these offenders to justice,” said Inspector Hampton.
