Operation Target - massive police propaganda?
200 police swooped on Queen's Crescent in Camden, London yesterday in what was a massive suprise raid on suspected drug dealers and criminal gangs in the area.
See http://www.camdennewjournal.com/news/2011/jul/200-police-gang-swoop-queens-crescent-rush-hour-operation-targets-drug-dealers-estate for details.
Although many will be delighted that a police operation on this scale has been mounted in the Queen's Crescent
area some will be questioning the timing of the operation.
A similar operation that had also been "months in planning" took place this week in Hackney.
That both these operations took place in the week that Sir Paul Stephenson and John Yates resigned seems more than a coincidence.
The briefing given to police in Queen's Crescent that I saw yesterday included a section attributed to Mr Godwin (presumably Tim Godwin Deputy Commissioner).
It was a rallying call to staff to "walk tall" during these "tricky" "challenging" "upsetting" times.
It refers specifically to the resignation of Sir Paul and Mr Yates.
I can't help but see this operation serving two purposes.
One is to fight crime.
The second is to boost police morale and to create positive propaganda in a bad news week for the Met.
