From Thursday 27 July and Monday 31 July, NSW Police raided six homes across Sydney’s south west, with assistance from Raptor Squad, following Firearms Prohibition Orders .

Five charges have been laid against three men.

This large-scale action shows NSW Police is proactively targeting and disrupting gun-related and violent crime while also investigating links between the spate of recent shootings on Sydney streets.

Community safety is the NSW Government’s top priority and we support this significant, targeted and aggressive approach to stamp out violent criminal activity on Sydney streets.
