    Operation unison, numerous police(?)
    14 offenders in 457 stops.
    Cost of operation, cost of the next court proceedings, legal aid etc
    What does police inteligence do with all this data? Where does it all go? How can any of this operations change anything/anyone of this (14) people behaviour?
    Well, we’ll just have to wait for another few of those statistics to measure some real changes/results, perhaps.
