Op Sorbus – December 2018 – Supt Julian Platt

2 min read

A new campaign targeting four areas of serious crime has been launched by Lancashire Police ahead of Christmas.

Operation Sorbus, led by the force’s Tactical Operations (TacOps) team, will focus on tackling cash-in-transit robberies, cash machine thefts, drink and drug drivers and ‘Hanoi’ burglaries, where expensive or high-powered vehicles are stolen from homes.

The campaign, which continues until the end of December, is aimed at detecting and preventing criminals from committing serious offences within the county.

Supt Julian Platt, Lancashire Police’s Operations Manager, said: “These crimes affect businesses, the general public and homeowners.

“They can have a devastating impact on their victims and leave them extremely vulnerable.

“Ahead of Christmas these types of offences increase and in turn we are increasing our activity to tackle these crimes.

“We want to help deter and detect this criminal activity and bring these offenders to justice.”
