Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS currently owns 14 Jankel trucks deployed across Armed Policing, Aviation Policing and Public Order.

Jankels have been deployed twice in operational public order incidents in the last two years.

Armed Commands use Jankels more regularly for both spontaneous and pre planned operations in line with the threat and risk that each incident presents.  The vehicles' deployment in this case is not routinely recorded.
