Community Weapons Sweep – Your Chance to get Involved

The CID department of the Met Police are conducting #FlashSearch es during the week of the 23rd of October.

It is part of a London wide operation with the aim of “to make Londoners of all ages safe from knife crime in our streets and public places, and to reduce the carrying of knives by young people.” (Met Police)

In particular, Flash Searches provide those searching with an understanding of the following:

  • Why join together in the search for knives and other items?
  • The methodical way to search areas.
  • Searching safely
  • Purpose of the de-brief at the conclusion of each search
  • The importance of forensics
