Athelney Group asked to support Operation BIRD 2!

The Metropolitan Police have asked that the NBCS and the Athelney Group conduct a 2nd followup Operation Bird in August. The dates will not be publically announced, due to the nature of the operation.

The Athelney Group are proud to support this industry/police initiative.

The last operation resulted in 29 arrests, with one case of an employee theft amounting to a crime in excess of £1m being discovered and arrests made.

On the next operation more private sector and police resources will be deployed to increase the impact.

Operation BIRD - an unmitigated success!

The National Business Crime Solution and Metropolitan Police business crime initiative 'Operation BIRD' took place on May 10th in Central London.

As part of this new initiative, the Athelney Group supplied 3 Safer Detention Units to improve safety and increase prisoner processing capacity for the operation.

A total of 6 prisoners/suspects were temporarily held in SDUs while private security and police conducted identity checks and initial investigations. This was conducted safely and securely as well as methodically.
