Alert message sent 28/10/2020 16:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police


Thames Valley Police has arrested a total of seven people as part of an operation targeting violent and knife crime offences in Windsor and Maidenhead.

The days of action, known as Operation Limit, took place throughout last week from Monday 19 October, across the local policing area.

The arrests are in connection with investigations in to a number of separate unrelated violent offences.

Chief Inspector James Senior, Deputy Local Policing Area Commander, said: “In the past six months, knife crime and robbery of the person has decreased in Windsor and Maidenhead.
“Thankfully, these kind of offences are not prevalent in our area however, this operation took place following several recent incidents which, understandably, caused some community concern.

“We wanted to act quickly, as we believe an immediate response can only help to further reduce similar offences from reoccurring in our communities. I also want everyone in the community to feel reassured by how seriously we take reports of such offences.”

The operation was followed by high visibility patrols in Windsor on Saturday (24/10) involving a number of officers from specialist units across Thames Valley Police. The Mounted Section, Dog Unit, and Joint Operations Unit carried out work in the town centres throughout the day and in to the night.

For the full details about the operation please read our media release.
