Police officers from the SLCPD bike squads, K-9 Squad, and members of the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team (VCAT) worked together in the operation focused on reducing violent crime, drug trafficking, gang activity, and gathering valuable information about crime trends in the city.
The operation allowed officers to conduct high-visibility patrols while engaging with community members. Officers were still able to take on service calls throughout the day.
Throughout the day officers conducted approximately 20 traffic stops, seized a firearm, recovered a stolen SUV, and recovered drugs, including heroin, cocaine, fentanyl pills, and located a stolen e-bike valued at $5,000. Officers also arrested one person and booked them into jail.
In addition to the suppression operation officers helped the department’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) execute a court-authorized search warrant.
