Anti-social behaviour and drink related crimes will be targetted by Bromley police over the bank holiday weekend.

Officers will look to follow on from a busy two days last weekend which saw 30 people arrested for offences including GBH, possession of Class A drugs, drunk driving and affray as part of Operation Condor.

Regular visits to pubs and clubs will be made across the borough, ensuring they are complying with licensing obligations and dealing with irresponsible alcohol sales.

There will also be uniformed high visibility patrols throughout Bromley’s town centres, at transport hubs and in busy areas.

Ch Insp Katrina Smith said: “People should be able to enjoy going out in our town centres across the borough without witnessing crime or disorder and this operation aims to ensure that this happens.

“The success of last weekend’s Operation Condor shows that we are using all options available to us to prevent trouble and deal with offenders and we will continue to make our presence felt this weekend.

“We will be working closely with licensees to extend exclusion orders, which bar certain people from our pubs and clubs, and we will also be working with Trading Standards to target places that sell alcohol illegally.

“Licensing laws are there for good reason as they help protect us from danger. Breaking them is not acceptable.”
