Operation Wheel targeting anti-social behaviour, NSW

The NSW Police Transport & Public Safety Command (PTC) conducted a high-visibility bicycle operation targeting anti-social behaviour on and around the public transport network, NSW Police say.

Operation Wheel, conducted yesterday (Thursday 11 January 2018), was designed to minimise crime and anti-social behaviour, and increase passenger safety on the public transport network, at interchanges, and commuter carparks.

Throughout the operation, officers attached to the Police Transport & Public Safety Command’s south/south west sector were deployed in and around major transport interchanges across south-western Sydney, Wollongong and the South Coast, throughout the day and night.

Of note, a 15-year-old girl was arrested at Panania and charged with three outstanding warrants. She was refused bail to appear at a children’s court yesterday (Thursday 11 January 2018).

A 20-year-old man was arrested at Canley Vale and issued a Future Service Court Attendance Notice to appear at Liverpool Local Court on Wednesday 28 February 2018 for the offence of goods in personal custody suspected being stolen.
