An excerpt from The Guardian article: Anti-gangs strategy risks becoming attack on young people, adviser warns

The new Trident gang crime command will tackle gun crime and spearhead the fight against gangs. The measures are the Met's response to demands from the Tory mayor of London, Boris Johnson, for police to do more to tackle gang crime. The initiative was launched with police raids on more than 100 addresses across the capital, involving around 1,300 police staff, with cameras in tow, in the hunt for alleged criminal gang members.
