Had a nice day today on an ANPR operation.
Was really a nice crew made up with Specials, Traffic, PCSO's, Baliffs, Imigration & DVLA.
Admitedly it is the first time I've worked with PCSO's on an operation and total respect to them all they where great. Saved us a lot of time by doing PNC checks while we would hastle driver & do our paperwork.
Was a big success with over 10 vehicles seized for either no insurance or outstanding fines. 2 arrests & a variety of tickets and bollockings issued.
Quite a bit of comedy as well like a 6' 5" person hiding in a bush and the guy in a brand new convertible having it seized for £3,000 outstanding parking fines (he must pay full ammount to get it back and now a storage charge each night he dont pay) but funniest point of the day, a fail to stop followed by the screaching of a traffic car flying out of a side street to chase then 20 people jumping on the radio screaming "your going the wrong way" ;-)
So all in all a very worthwhile day and a lot of people for a variety of backgrounds in law enforcement working together, have already put my name down for the next one.
