  1. Polizia di Stato (Ministry of Interior) plain mopeds make arrest: The 'lollipop stick' is called a paletta I believe and is a symbol of authority.(Each police force has their own name on it and it is used on roads). Could you get much more Italian!
  2. One PC knocked drug dealer off scooter, the other apprehended him. PC George Anckorn and PC Russell Mellis Date - 3rd August 2018 By - Ian Weinfass - Police Oracle 5 Comments Officers who used a tactical stop to apprehend a criminal on a moped have been commended by a judge. PC George Anckorn and PC Russell Mellis were on patrol when they saw Abdirizak Kheyre, 19, driving a stolen scooter on Hornsey Road junction with Highgate Hill, Islington, north London. They pulled alongside the scooter while it was stationary and asked Kheyre to stop. But he made off soon travelling at almost twice the speed limit. PC Mellis, who was driving the police vehicle, made tactical contact with the scooter, causing Kheyre to fall off. The criminal tried to run away but PC Anckorn chased and detained him. There were no injuries. Kheyre was found in possession of nine bags of cannabis and others containing cocaine and ecstasy. They also found a kitchen knife, approximately 22cm in length, behind the front panel of the moped. Kheyre had a revoked provisional licence and had no vehicle registration in his name. He was later sentenced to 21 months’ detention in a young offender’s institution. Judge Tony Badenoch QC said: “Kheyre placed pedestrians and other road uses at very great risk and had not the slightest concern for them. “It was necessary for PC Mellis to knock Kheyre from the scooter in a controlled manner to bring the pursuit to a close. PC Anckorn then took up the chase on foot and apprehended the offender who continued to resist arrest. Kheyre was brought to a stop by the combined skill of the officers in exceptionally difficult circumstances.” The pair are part of Operation Venice, the Met’s team which tackles scooter-enabled crime. Inspector Jim Corbett, from the team, said: "It is fantastic that these two officers have been commended for their great skill in making tactical contact with Kheyre, which consequently led to his arrest and subsequent conviction.” View On Police Oracle

    Mopeds on motorways

    Hi, can a moped drive on a motorway please, if the driver has a full licence? Is there a minimum speed for motorways? And a last question, is the A1(M) a motorway? Thank you.
  4. MOPED delivery riders took revenge on a would-be thief by beating him with a metal pole. Full Story - The Sun London seems to be a ticking time bomb, only a matter of time before we see mass disorder. I am surprised it has not happened already, great respect to the police who patrol the streets of the capital. Everyone seems to be a target including paramedics, one paramedic had a "noxious substance" thrown at her as she responded to an emergency call, in Tottehnam north London. Utter madness
  5. A 16-year-old boy is in a critical condition after a collision between a marked police car and a moped being ridden by three boys. Full Story - Guardian
  6. Excellent! Well done to that traffic unit and the MET police in general. I was surprised to see them making tactical contact. I was under the impression the MET didn't allow bike pursuits at all, unless they were armed etc, let alone tactical contact. Has the MET changed their policy? Public opinion is that they're too risk averse with bike pursuits.
  7. Original Article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-38294358 A 600% increase! There's an interesting video as part of the article where an officer on a motorbike apparently uses tactical contact on the moped using his own motorbike. I'm glad they did it, but I'm surprised this was allowed. I hope the MET police and other forces see sense and relax pursuit policies in regards to mopeds and motorbikes. It's not fair or right that they can get away scot free.
