Police adopt new tactics to tackle moped thieves after rise in violent crime
Officers have been given new, faster motorbikes and will continue chasing suspects even if they take their helmets off.
Police will continue to pursue escaping moped thieves, even if they take off their helmets, Britain’s top police officer has warned.
Scotland Yard Commissioner Cressida Dick said: “We haven’t reduced pursuits. There are a lot of myths around this. People think if they take off their helmets we will stop, but that’s not true.
“We have more than doubled the number of pursuits and that will continue, particularly with the introduction of new bikes.”
Ms Dick was speaking as the Metropolitan Police revealed new tactics against moped thieves which they said had already cut the level of a crime that has rocketed in the past two years.
