Working jointly with local partner agencies, officers from Enfield and Haringey launched Operation Argo on Monday, 17 January following disorder that took place at Edmonton Green on Friday, 14 January.

The operational activity includes partnership work with local schools, enhanced patrols and an increased police presence at key locations, such as transport hubs, at the start and end of the school day.

12 people were arrested for public order offences in relation to the disorder on 14 January and a dedicated investigation team continues to review CCTV, body worn video and social media in order to identify further suspects.

Local residents and students can expect to see an increased police presence on Friday, 21 January to ensure that the disorder of last week is not repeated.
