Two people were arrested in Queensbury for possession of a blade and theft after a knife arch was placed in the station.
A 28-year-old was arrested for possessing a knife, after officers from the Queensbury Safer Neighbourhoods Team (SNT) set up the arch between 1pm and 4.30pm on Monday (02). Another man was also arrested for theft of an Oyster card and a man was verbal warned after he was found to be carrying a pocket knife.
Sergeant Tony Vodden, from Queensbury SNT, said: "We did a survey around the station and 86 per cent of people said they would like a higher presence.
"We had four robberies over a week last month in the area and people have been very co-operative about the searches."
The arch was part of the Safer Neighbourhood Team's week of action, an event which gives Mollison Way residents the opportunity to meet the team and have their questions about community safety answered. Extra patrols have been taking place throughout this week (June 2-6).
The last day of the week is an open session for the public to come and meet the team in a trailer outside the Flying Eagle Pub, in Mollison Way, Edgware, from 9.30am until 1pm on Friday (06).
