Operation Scorpion

Operation Scorpion

Operation Scorpion is Hertfordshire's initiative to drive down serious-acquisitive crime, relentlessly pursue criminals, bring them to justice and make the county a more hostile place for them to operate.


Operation Scorpion targets burglars, robbers and those involved in  drug and vehicle related crime. Activity is focused on those criminals causing the most harm to our communities through a wide range of proactive work carried out by police officers and staff across the Constabulary.
