The Met is appealing for the public’s help in tracing the most wanted high harm offenders.
A number of individuals are wanted for a range of violent offences such as firearms, grievous bodily harm (GBH), recall to prison, robbery and drugs offences,
This activity to target high harm offenders is part of the annual Autumn Nights campaign to bear down on violence now the evenings are darker.
The suspects are classed as ‘high harm’ as they are either wanted in connection with violent offences such as, robbery and GBH, and they are known to have a violent background.
Detective Inspector Dean Purvis, of the Violent Crime Taskforce, said: “We are relentlessly pursuing violent offenders and bringing them to justice so that we can keep our city safe, but we need the help of the public as well. Somebody, somewhere knows something about these offenders and I urge you to pass any information to us as soon as possible.
“These individuals have caused harm and unrest in our communities and it is our priority to arrest them to prevent them from causing further destruction.
“We have already arrested more than 850 high harm offenders as part of our continued drive to tackle violent crime and we will not stop. We are dedicated in taking the most dangerous people off the streets and will keep Londoners safe.
“I hope the public can assist in apprehending these dangerous people; if you see them please call us right away on 101 or 999 if it’s an emergency. If you don’t want to speak to police, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.
“Similarly, if your see your photo here, do the right thing and deal with your actions so you can move forward, and hand yourself in to your nearest police station. We are searching for you day and night and will find you eventually.”
Communities also have a vital role to play in tackling violent crime and we urge anyone who may have information to tell us, so that we can tackle violence together. We need information about crime or those who carry a weapon, or those that exploit people for gain or revenge, while putting young people’s lives at risk. Community intelligence can be used to great effect to not only detect, but also prevent crime, keep London safe and save young lives.
If you don’t want to speak to the police, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They are a totally independent charity and you remain 100 per cent anonymous, they never ask your name and they cannot trace your call, your IP address or device you use. Alternatively, visit their website.
