Bernard Hogan-Howe, Scotland Yard Chief, predicted that crime in London would “fall sharply” in the next two or three years. Initiatives include:
Recruit 1,200 extra constables for front line policing.
Target gangs, as gangs account for 50% cent of shootings, 25% of serious violence and 15% of rape with 1,500 suspected gang member arrests to date.
Improve forensics and DNA techniques and ensure that criminals are arrested quickly.
Ensure that a police officer visits all victims of crime if requested to build relationships and help to in detection.
