CAMERA SHY: Police investigating ULEZ camera damage in Hillingdon and Harrow

 Published on: 18th August 2023   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Metropolitan Police are investigating numerous reports of Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) cameras being vandalised across London, including in Hillingdon and Harrow.

An operation was launched in April after reports of criminal damage and theft were passed to the Met Police by Transport for London (TfL).

As of Tuesday, August 1, police had recorded 288 crimes relating to ULEZ cameras. This includes approximately 185 reports of cables being damaged, 164 cameras being stolen and 38 reports of cameras being obscured.

As part of the ongoing operation, officers have now released an image of a man they are working to trace in connection with four offences in Hillingdon, Harrow and Uxbridge on Saturday, June 17.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information about the man in the image is asked to call police on 101 or contact via Twitter @MetCC. Please quote CAD3968/14AUG.

Officers continue to work in partnership with TfL to proactively tackle the targeting of ULEZ cameras across London.

Commander Owain Richards said: “These are clearly unacceptable acts of criminality and we have a team of officers investigating and identifying those responsible.

“We are providing a proportionate policing response, balancing these incidents against the wide range of operational demand and crime we must respond to across London.

“We are working closely with TfL and alongside our investigation into offences already committed we are supporting them identify new ways to prevent further cameras from being damaged or stolen.

“We are continually reviewing where we need to focus our efforts and we will continue to do that over the coming weeks to ensure we are providing the service Londoners expect from us.”
