Victoria Police has escalated its response to aggravated burglaries and carjackings across the state. At the start of May we rolled out Operation Cosmas – drawing together investigators under the umbrella of Crime Command.
These investigators within each region were allocated additional resources to the operation which aims to prevent, deter and investigate aggravated burglaries and carjackings.
Day and night patrols are being conducted at high risk locations to prevent offences taking place.
Since the operation commenced there have been more than 75 arrests.
