Riot Round-Up 2 a Success

“Seventy-thousand posters handed out across 19 cities in 75 locations, by over 400 volunteers and police officers in less than 12 hours, has left a lot of rioters nervous,” says Team Commander, Inspector Les Yeo.  “In less than 24 hours, we have had over 3500 unique visitors to our website and scores of tips and leads that have come in.”

  • almost 150 tips through our website
  • more than 60 phone tips
  • dozens and dozens of tips from members of the public approaching volunteers and police with leads

Riot Round-Up 2 has been an incredible success. The large number of volunteers assembled in a short time and the outpouring we received from the public yesterday unquestionably shows the public still care about the victims and that rioters are held accountable.
