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.

Additional results include, 22 trains and 37 railway stations were patrolled, 14 people were searched, 16 move-on directions issued, and 34 transport infringements issued.
