Operations & Initiatives
Operation Trafalgar – Hot spot policing focuses on recent incidents of
crime, using statistical data over a period of three years. Designing patrol
strategies, to be at the right place at the right time, to reduce crime.
As part of these patrol strategies the NPT have carried out Hi Visibility
patrols at our identified hot spots consisting of Sutton and East Croydon
stations. They also engaged with staff, and the feedback received from
the public and staff has increased public confidence.
Op Sneeze – Joint plain clothes initiative led by PC Del Morriss with
Southern Railway and Railway Neighbourhood officers (RNOs) to deal
with tissue begging offences, also received positive feedback from
Stakeholders. This has lead to 20 prosecutions in court.
PACT Meeting Dates
Police and Communities Together
(PACT) meetings are held so that the
London Bridge NPT can meet with
passengers, station staff, shop
tenants and managers in order to
discuss issues and problems
regarding the stations we patrol, and
