The Violent Crime Task Force (VCTF) has made 1,069 arrests since its creation in April 2018. The quoted figure of “over 1300 arrests” included other assets that was aligned to the VCTF, such as the daily Police Support Unit (PSU) deployments and their activities.

With regards to how many cautions/charges and convictions that followed, this data is not held. The MPS is currently reviewing a system and process to capture this data and is unable to provide this data currently.
