Police deploy knife arch at Bromley College Rookery Lane

Police have launched an operation cracking down on persistent antisocial behaviour near a college in Bromley.

A knife arch was set up by officers and police in plain clothing were positioned strategically in Bromley College Rookery Lane on Tuesday, December 8.

Bromley MPS say students have been using communal areas in Trinity Village and Crown Lane to “gather at varius times, causing stress and alarm to residents.”

In response, the local police force, along with the Met’s schools unit, have started cracking down on the behaviour in a number of ways.

One such way was the deployment of a knife arch on Rookery Lane on Tuesday, with officers in plain clothing looking for students doing a u-turn upon seeing the arch.

Meetings are also being held with the college, the management group and residents.
