Your article (Police battle to stop rising tide of bus assaults, H&H Broadway April 17) fails to credit the important work carried out by the uniformed police and community support officers who have been patrolling London's buses since 2002.
These patrols were increased last year with the introduction of Haringey's Safer Transport Team of an extra 21 police and community support officers dedicated to buses in the borough. This team complements the work of the MPS Transport Operational Command Unit of more than 1,200 uniformed officers patrolling on and around the whole London bus network.
Five years of targeted policing is working. Latest police figures show a 13 per cent drop in bus-related crime in the capital.
