Transport Operational Command Unit

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many arrests by the Metropolitan Police’s Transport Operational Command Unit have led to successful prosecutions. (85475)

I have been asked to reply.

An accurate figure showing the number of successful prosecutions resulting from Transport Operational Command Unit (TOCU) specific arrests is not available.

The TOCU covers all London boroughs. In the 2005-06 planning year TOCU police officers arrested 7,952 suspects. They were all processed through one of the 32 Borough Operational Command Unit criminal justice units covering the areas of arrest.
