OP Trojan - Not your usual Bus service

Doncaster East NPT officers have been working with First Buses this evening in an attempt to tackle antisocial behaviour in the area.
Just after Christmas we saw an increase in the number of buses being targetted in acts of mindless criminal damage, not only putting the buses out of service but putting members of public at risk of injury.

This evening we have had plain clothed officers deployed on the bus ready to catch the offenders should they choose to strike.
The Bus has travelled throughout Armthorpe, Edenthorpe, Hatfield, Dunscroft, Stainforth and Thorne.

I am pleased to report that we didn’t encounter any issues this evening, but we will continue to run operations like this in the future. 


This operation is called Trojan – any ideas why?
