Operation Trivium Operation Trivium


A MAJOR police operation is running across Barnsley aiming to crackdown on foreign criminals.

The international policing operation, called Trivium 5, is aimed at disrupting criminal activity by denying travelling, foreign criminals use of the roads.

The Roads Policing Unit are operating from now until Saturday doing road checks, utilising the ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) systems and other intelligence led activity, to catch those using the roads network throughout the county who are involved in a variety of crime, including human trafficking, slavery, theft and drugs.

Roads Policing Chief Inspector Glen Suttenwood said: ““I want to make it very clear that this operation is about targeting criminals, not the communities they are from.

“These offenders are intent on blighting the lives of those living, working and visiting our communities, and we are determined to tackle the criminality they are involved in.“

This is a much needed scheme which hopefully improves public safety on our streets.

Why advertise the fact there is an operation? Seems to me they would just avoid the area. By all means advertise results but I don't see why telling the public it's on will help results

What difference does the nationality of the criminal make, all criminals, English or foreign should be 'targeted'
