A new North Wales Police strategy ‘Operation Scorpion’ is aimed at tackling serious and organised crime and target the gangs behind it.

One of Operation Scorpion aims is to keep the people of north Wales more aware of the progress being made to tackle organised crime where they live by developing a two way communication process.

As part of the launch the Police are encouraging the public to provide North Wales Police with information and to share their concerns about individuals or criminal groups.

Operation Scorpion will manage all types of serious and organised criminality including

  • cross-border crime.
  • armed robbery.
  • criminal use of firearms.
  • kidnapping or human trafficking.
  • drug production, importation and supply.

DCS Wayne Jones, Head of Crime Services said,

“We have an excellent record of working with our communities and very often that vital piece of information which helps us convict the criminals comes from the community.”

“Those who are involved in serious and organised crime seldom do so quietly, they very often live well beyond their obvious means, drive expensive cars, live in large houses and are often out of the country. 

These are some of the clues that someone may be living on the proceeds of crime”.

Police are asking if you know someone who fits the profile then we encourage you to contact Police 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 to support Operation Scorpion.
