Operation Capio Update


Good Evening,


Our dedicated team to tackle motorcycle disorder started last week and they have already made a positive impact. The team have been working across the South East Northumberland area patrolling in our hotspot locations, targeting known offenders and engaging with members of the public. 


So far the team have have seized 5 x motorcycles, 2 x quads, a motor vehicle and an electric scooter, some of which were identified as having been stolen. With the use of our new drones, the team are able to gather the evidence needed to help us in identifying the offenders and take action against those who continue to cause anti-social behaviour.



Please help us tackle this issue and continue to make reports giving as much detail as possible. You can make these reports by calling 101 or via our online reporting system at the "Tell Us Something" page of the Northumbria Police Website. You can also make these reports anonymously.


You can also report information anonymously via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
