NSW Police Transport Command officers conducted Operation Colossus, a one-day high-visibility operation yesterday, targeting crime and anti-social behaviour on public transport in South-west Sydney.
Officers from the Police Transport Command - both uniformed and plain-clothed - with the assistance of bicycle operatives, Operations Support Group, and Sydney Trains Transport Officers, were deployed on the rail network across south west Sydney yesterday (Thursday 13 April 2017).
Acting Assistant Commissioner Mark Walton of the Police Transport Command said the operation is about making the rail network safe for all people.
“The aim of the operation is to ensure the safety and well-being of all commuters on the rail network.
“The dedicated officers of the Police Transport Command will not stand for any criminal or anti-social behaviour on the network, and you will continue to see us around transport hubs.
“We make no apologies for catching criminals that use the public transport network and putting them before the courts.
“We will continue to conduct high-visibility and covert operations across the public transport network in order to make it even safer for everyone,” Assistant Commissioner Walton said.
During the operation 22 Police and 10 Sydney Trains Transit Officers patrolled 15 trains, 5 buses and 35 railway stations.
3 people were arrested, 5 charges were laid and 102 infringements were issued for a variety of offences.
A 43-year-old man was arrested at Fairfield Railway Station, after police located 5 small bags of heroin. He was taken to Fairfield Police Station where he was charged with possess prohibited drug and an outstanding warrant.
The man was refused bail and is due to appear at Parramatta Local Court today (Friday 14 April 2017).
