Police – Operation Reclaim in Harrow

From time to time, Roxeth, Roxbourne and Rayners Lane Safer Neighbourhoods Teams get together and run Operation Reclaim on some of the area’s busiest roads. These operations bring together the traffic unit, an ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) van, and a number of officers, to check – automatically – all vehicles passing a specific point for insurance, MOT, road tax or other ‘markers’ of interest. Vehicles which cause an alert to flag up will be stopped, and investigated in more detail.

Typically, these operations will run for as long as officers are available to deal with arrests and vehicle seizures.

In the last operation, on April 7th 2011, six cars were seized, and two people were arrested for failing to have insurance or proper licences to drive.
