Police officers stop 200 vehicles in crackdown in Three Rivers
More than 200 vehicles were stopped in and around Three Rivers in a single day as part of a major crackdown on drivers breaking the law.
Lorries, vans, cars and taxis were stopped as part of the joint operation which involved officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary, Thames Valley Police and the Metropolitan Police.
Officers stationed in Northwood, South Oxhey, Abbots Langley and on major roads used numberplate reading ANPR cameras to identify vehicles believed to be stolen, involved in crime or without the correct documents.
Action was taken against 27 drivers for offences ranging from possession of cannabis to driving without insurance and being involved in the theft of wooden pallets.
Neighbourhood PC Christian Gottman led the operation and said: "Three Rivers has low crime levels and this year has seen even further reductions, however we are aware that criminals travel from other areas into Three Rivers to commit crime and seek to deter them by providing a visible presence near those borders."
