Carried out in late August, Operation Hushed was a visible four-day operation that targeted high harm areas to reduce offending.

Senior Sergeant Daniel Grieve, Belmont Police Station, said the Operation addressed community concerns.

“Operation Hushed was initiated by Belmont Police after we identified an increase in crime in the Rivervale area”, he said.

Traffic Enforcement Group (TEG), Regional Operations Group (ROG) and detectives assisted Belmont Police with search warrants, arrests, curfew checks, vehicle stops and summonses to court. 

“The Operation drew in a number of additional resources and saw 33 people arrested for offences including burglary, stealing of motor vehicle and theft offences”, said Senior Sargent Daniel Grieve.

An additional five people were arrested on outstanding arrest warrants.

Senior Sergeant Daniel Grieve said similar future Western Australia Police Force actions will be undertaken.

“With the success of Operation Hushed, the public can expect to see more of this type of operations.”
