Postby admin » 24 Mar 2016, 19:44

A brothel operating close to St Matthew’s Primary School in Luton has been shut down by police. A warrant was executed on the house in Cobden Street yesterday after reports it was being used as a brothel. A closure order was then granted by the court.

It is among the latest activities undertaken by Beds Police’s “Operation Sentinel” which currently aims to tackle on and off-street sex trade problems.

Chief Insp Sean Quinn said: “This closure is an excellent example of the brilliant work the Op Sentinel team are doing to clamp down on sex trade. If it matters to our communities, then it matters to us, and we’re determined to keep up the high level of success that we have seen in the first few weeks.”

Members of the public can email information about issues in their community to the team via opsentinel@bedfordshire.pnn.police.uk

Anti-social behaviour can also be reported via 101.

Bedfordshire Police’s Op Sentinel has successfully secured a closure notice on a property in Hedley Rise, Luton.

Op Sentinel executed a warrant on Wednesday 14 December after intelligence was received suggesting that the premises might be being used as a brothel. After carrying out searches at the address, three women were found and safeguarded.

A 24-hour closure notice was placed on the location followed by closure order agreed at court, which was set for three months.

The Op Sentinel team was launched at the beginning of March this year, with the aim to tackle various anti-social behaviour issues, such as the on- and off-street sex trade, nuisance motorbikes, drug dealing and street drinking. Since its launch the team has secured numerous warrants to tackle the sex trade in Luton.

Sergeant Dick Doggrell from Op Sentinel team said: “Warrants like this are very important for the communities of Luton. We won’t tolerate modern day slavery and the sexual exploitation of people, we are taking strong action against those responsible.”

Chief Inspector Sean Quinn who is the Force lead for Op Sentinel said: “It is our key priority to protect the public and ensure that Luton a safe place to live. We will continue to target those that exploit the vulnerable in our society and treat all reports of anti-social behaviour very seriously.”
