Coordinated police activity at Beckenham Junction and neighbourhood

Last week saw coordinated police activity by a Met Roads and Transport Unit and railway revenue officers in the roads round Beckenham Junction Station and at the station itself, with road checks for mobile phone use, insurance and/or MOT, and seat belts. At the same time the large group of officers kept a check on the incoming trams, and with colleagues from Transport Revenue stopped fare dodgers coming off both trains and trams.
The combined operation at Beckenham Junction Station produced excellent results according to the Sergeant in charge: “We made one arrest for possession of a lock knife and conducted several stop searches on some known criminals.  Beckenham Junction is a safe community and we are working hard to increase our visibility and presence. This week we deployed with the railway revenue officers; they were kept busy checking tickets and issued about 30 penalty fares (£80).”
