Drop In Gang Violence In London
Serious violence among young people in the capital is falling since a crackdown on gangs was launched just over six months ago.
Scotland Yard say serious youth violence was down by 34%, that's 1000 fewer victims, since the launch of the Trident Gang Crime Command in February.
Knife injuries involving those under 25 have reduced by 29%, and the number of times a gun has been fired has dropped by 21%.
The unit was set up to spearhead a renewed and long-term approach to tackling gangs and officers have been engaged in pro-active and targeted operations to tackle and disrupt gang activity.
Since April, more than 1,500 known gang members have been arrested, many of them charged with serious offences and 125 weapons taken off the streets across London.
