Funded by your council tax as part of my campaign to boost police numbers, the Crime Squad has been targeting burglars, robbers and thieves to bring even more to justice.
More than 100 charges have been issued by a single Kent Police unit dedicated at tackling dangerous and repeat offenders in one month.
The charges were mostly authorised against burglary, robbery and serial theft suspects following investigations by the Chief Constable’s Crime Squad during June 2020 and many have been remanded in custody ahead of future court dates.
Investigations carried out by the same team secured a total of 107 charges as well as 48 years and seven months in prison sentences, including 15 years for a burglar who stamped on a victim’s head after he was interrupted mid-offence. Thirty-nine arrests were also made over the same time period.
