My budget will pay for more officers to join the ranks of Op Centurion, the county-wide crack down on Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB).

Since the launch of Op Centurion in July 2023 officers have:

  • spent an additional 14,000 hours walking the beat
  • attended more than 1,300 incidents of ASB
  • carried out 3,300 stop checks and 600 stop searches

My budget will also continue to support Op Warrior, disrupting and dismantling organised crime to bring more offenders in Lancashire to justice, as well as stripping them of their cash, cars and other assets.

Since its launch in November 2022, Op Warrior has resulted in:

  • 1,409 arrests of organised crime gang suspects
  • 318kg of class A and B drugs taken off our streets
  • £1.3m cash seized from criminals
  • Seizure of 18,249 cannabis plants

 

My Priorities

  • Dedicated neighbourhood policing teams for every inch of Lancashire, backed up by task forces.

Disrupting and Dismantling Organised Crime

  • Investment in capacity and capability for specialist targeted operations.
  • Work with regional partners to target and disrupt organised crime gangs.
  • Seizing the assets of those who profit from exploitation and criminal activity.

 

 

 

Tackling Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence

  • A dedicated rape and serious sexual assault team.
  • £5million more to support victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence and to deal with perpetrators.
  • Specialist services to support victims.
