July has been a hot one – not only in terms of the heatwave but, unfortunately, also in terms of crime in our borough.
As our emergency services battled to do their jobs in temperatures in excess of thirty degrees, they did their best to keep Harrow updated via their Twitter feeds. We take a look at some of the updates from the past week.
Public danger averted – MPS Firearms Command – @MPSFirearms
#SCO19 officers safely stopped and detained the driver of a vehicle, which had made off from police in the @MPSBarnet area last night. This bag, containing a shotgun was also recovered after it was discarded during the pursuit. #JobLikeNoOther #ProudToProtect
One way road to trouble – Marlborough Police – @MPSMarlborough
- 27 July
This Golf GTi was a nice car in its day but wasn’t fast enough to evade PC Underwood. Alas the poor car is now uninsured, untaxed and un mot’d and thus off for a nice holiday at the police pound while the driver goes to court for the offences. #seized #MakeWealdstoneGreatAgain
Stamping out hate crime – Roxeth Police – @MPSRoxeth
